- Stay away from the elderberry wine! Teeming with inexhaustible high jinks, narrow escapes, and vaudeville humor, this quirky farce is one for the ages. Spring Hill High School Theatre Department presents Joseph Kesselring's infectiously funny dark comedy Arsenic and Old Lace. Murder, mayhem, and madcap lunacy abound in the Brewster home. Mortimer Brewster is a drama critic whose two spinster aunts have a unique hobby—they poison lonely old men with elderberry wine laced with arsenic. One of his brothers thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and another murderous brother is on the run from the law. All are getting in the way of Mortimer’s plans to marry the woman he loves. Playwright Joseph Kesselring’s masterpiece became an instant classic when the film version was released in 1944 directed by Frank Capra and starring Cary Grant.
