In the wicked farce Arsenic and Old Lace, when Mortimer Brewster goes home to share the happy news of his engagement, he discovers his family's gone completely crazy. One brother thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt at the Panama Canal, another brother has been transformed by plastic surgery into a Boris Karloff-style monster, and his spinster aunts have taken to poisoning lonely men and burying them in their basement.

Originally written for the stage in 1939 and later made into a beloved Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, Arsenic and Old Lace follows poor Mortimer as he juggles his pre-marriage jitters with family antics and the meddling police.
