Screwball Dark Comedy Arsenic & Old Lace
When arriving at home to share the happy news of your engagement, the last thing you want to discover is that your family has gone completely crazy. But that's exactly what theater critic Mortimer Brewster finds when he returns home. One uncle thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt at the Panama Canal, another uncle 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. In this hilarious dark comedy, originally written for the stage in 1939 and later made into a beloved Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, poor Brewster has to juggle his pre-marriage jitters with family antics and meddling police.
