Clairemont Act One presents Arsenic and Old Lace, a classic dark comedy best known by the 1944 movie starring Cary Grant as the relatively normal Mortimer Brewster. “Insanity runs in my family. It practically gallops!”
Two sweet spinster sisters cure lonely old men of their loneliness by poisoning them with elderberry wine. Add in a homicidal maniac brother who looks like Boris Karloff after too many face-changing surgeries from the submissive Dr. Einstein and another brother with a Delusional Disorder that convinces him he is President Teddy Roosevelt ….well, it is hard not to laugh, so don’t try.
