Arsenic and Old Lace is a farcical black comedy written by Joseph Kesselring and presented by Highlands Summer Festival. Meet Abby and Martha Brewster, the charming and innocent ladies who operate a boarding house, especially for elderly gentlemen. The two spinster sisters interview their potential boarders to ensure they will be socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers and then … well, perhaps you’ll have to discover for yourself. Their demented nephew, who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, unwittingly assists in their schemes. A popular movie version of Arsenic and Old Lace featured Cary Grant and Priscilla Lane. All evening performances at 8 p.m. at the Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion.
