Excellent production. The actresses playing the aunts played it just right. It was fast moving, enjoyable---just what I want in an evening's entertainment.

Great production. Teddy was really good and I quickly forgot Cary Grant as Mortimer in the movie. If you want a comedy tonight, it's well worth attending.

Description

By Joseph Kesselring

Directed by Frank Galati

Featuring Cindy Gold, Mary Poole, John Morlein and Dennis Zacek

Never have mayhem and murder been this much fun! A clever combination of the farcical and the macabre, Joseph Kesselring’s play centers on two elderly sisters, famous in their Brooklyn neighborhood both for their charity and their befuddled nephew who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt. But the sisters have a secret—a secret that is deadly for the lonely old gentlemen who appear on the sisters’ doorstep, looking for lodging.

Under the direction of Tony Award-winning Frank Galati with costume design by Jeff Award-winning Virgil Johnson and Collette Pollard, this black comedy will feature guest stars Northwestern alumnus and Victory Gardens Theatre founder/artistic director Dennis Zacek, local favorite actor John Morlein, along with award-winning Northwestern acting faculty Cindy Gold and Mary Poole as the sinister, but hilarious sisters!
