Arsenic and Old Lace
presented by Archbishop Carney Threatre
March 2-4, 2023 7 PM
Archbishop Carney Theatre is proud to present Arsenic and Old Lace, a classic dark comedy. Drama critic Mortimer Brewster’s (James Van Der Mark) engagement to Elaine (Sheridan Nix) is upended when he discovers a corpse in his elderly aunts’ window seat. Mortimer rushes to tell his Aunt Abby (Patricia Lucero) and Aunt Martha (Abigail Carino) before they stumble upon the body themselves, only to learn that the two old women aren’t just aware of the dead man in their living room, they killed him! Between his aunts’ penchant for poisoning wine, a brother (Nicolas Lam) who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and another brother (Luke Ablett) who’s using plastic surgery to hide from the police–not to mention Mortimer’s hesitancy about marriage –it’ll be a miracle if Mortimer makes it to his wedding. The show runs March 2-4, 2023. 7:00pm at the Terry Fox Theatre in Port Coquitlam. Tickets are $17 at acrss.org
