Murder and Mayhem in Ivoryton

Joseph Kesselring’s Arsenic & Old Lace opens the summer season at Ivoryton Playhouse on June 9th.

Arsenic & Old Lace is a classic comedy about the sweet old Brewster sisters, Abbie and Martha, beloved in their genteel Brooklyn neighborhood for their many charitable acts. One charity which the ladies don't advertise is their ongoing effort to permit lonely bachelors to die with smiles on their faces--by serving said bachelors elderberry wine spiked with arsenic!

Julia Kiley directs this production with Dan Whelton as Mortimer; Courtney Shaw as his girlfriend, Elaine; Tom Libonate as Teddy; Robert Boardman as the sinister Jonathan; R. Bruce Connelly as his sidekick Dr. Einstein and Alden Murphy and Susan Pynn as the delightful Brewster sisters. Set design by Rachel Reynolds, lighting by Aaron Bresky, and costumes by Pam Puente complete the production.
