Family drama turns macabre

-A A +A

Theater > Catch ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Los Alamos Little Theater

By Jennifer Garcia

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as the saying goes. While this statement is true for many aspects of family life, Los Alamos Little Theatre’s “Arsenic and Old Lace” proves that it also sometimes applies to criminal activities.
Written by Joseph Kesselring, directed by T.J. Severinghaus and produced by Gracie Cainelli and Jim Sicilian, “Arsenic and Old Lace” kicks off LALT’s 70th anniversary.
The play is set in 1940s Brooklyn and focuses on the lives of the Brewster sisters, played by Jody Shepard (Abby) and Jeanne Adkins (Martha). The sisters live in their father’s house with their nephews Teddy Brewster (Larry Gibbons) and Mortimer Brewster (Don Monteith) and lead what would appear to be a normal life. They run a boarding house of sorts, as they rent out rooms in their home to gentlemen looking for a place to stay.
