Arsenic and Old Lace

We are very excited to welcome back audiences to Studio’s first production since March 2020. Arsenic and Old Lace, written by Joseph Kesselring and directed by Anthony von Roretz will run on Monday 20th September to Saturday 25th at 7:30 each night.

Theatre critic Mortimer is aghast to learn that his two elderly maiden aunts have a penchant for sending lonely old gents to a better place with the help of their homemade elderberry wine.  To make matters worse, brother Teddy thinks he is Theodore Roosevelt and is building the Panama Canal in the basement and homicidal gangster brother Jonathan turns up looking for a safe place to hide from the cops.

Things are a little different as we re-open Studio Theatre and welcome back audiences. Please be sure to read our Terms and Conditions before finalising your booking and note the following:

Please be aware that, for this production, there will be restricted numbers of tickets sold.
