The Suffield Players is thrilled to announce its upcoming production of the timeless comedy Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring. Directed by the talented Becca Coolong, this uproarious play promises to entertain audiences with its witty humor and eccentric characters.

Set in a charming yet quirky old house, Arsenic and Old Lace follows the eccentric Brewster family and their darkly comedic misadventures. The two elderly sisters, Abby and Martha Brewster, played by Kelly Seip and Mary Fernandez-Sierra, deliver an unforgettable performance as they take compassion to a whole new level by luring lonely old men and “helping” them find peace. Chaos ensues when their nephew Mortimer Brewster (Fahad Rahmat) discovers their peculiar hobby, leading to a hilarious chain of events that will keep audiences in stitches.

Mark your calendars for an unforgettable theatrical experience on Oct. 5, 6, 7, 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 8 p.m., with a special matinee performance on Oct. 15 at 2 p.m. The Suffield Players’ theater, known for its intimate setting and dedicated cast, is the perfect backdrop for this comedic gem that has delighted audiences for generations.
