Poster for Arsenic and Old Lace


Theatre critic Mortimer Brewster plans to get engaged to his sweetheart Elaine. But he discovers his two charming elderly aunts have taken up a gruesome hobby: they “charitably” murder lonely old men by giving them elderberry wine laced with arsenic! Meanwhile, his dotty brother Teddy, who thinks he is Theodore Roosevelt, is digging the Panama Canal in the basement – a handy place to bury the bodies. Matters are made worse by the unwelcome return of his serial-killer brother Jonathan, with his drunk plastic surgeon, a new face, and a corpse in tow. How can Mortimer stop their murderous antics without giving things away? And how can he marry Elaine when insanity seems to run in his homicidal family? Arsenic and Old Lace was a smash hit when it opened in New York and became an all-time classic film. Join us for a rollicking black farce.

A Parable by John Patrick Shanley

directed by Jeff Caster


Doubt poster

In 1964, Sister Aloysius, a rigid, conservative nun who runs a Catholic school in the Bronx, and Father Flynn, the warm-hearted, liberal priest of the parish, engage in a battle of wills, words, and philosophy. Novice Sister James is caught in the middle when the suspicion arises that Father Flynn’s friendship with the first-ever African-American student at the school might be more than it should be. With her help, Sister Aloysius sets out to teach Father Flynn a lesson, for the sake of the boy. But unexpectedly she, too, is taught an intriguing lesson by the boy’s mother. DOUBT is a forceful and intimate look at the power of suspicion, fear, and intimidation, dealing with a problem that is disturbingly still relevant today.



Father Flynn: Harald Djürken
