Written by American playwright Joseph Kesselring, this dark comedy opened in New York in 1941. The play was a legit hit on it’s own, but most people probably know the story best from a subsequent 1944 Frank Capra film which starred Cary Grant as the beleaguered drama critic trying to cope his eccentric family (a delusional uncle, homicidal brother and two spinster aunts with a fondness for offing lonely old men).
From Oct. 1-4 Regina Little Theatre will be presenting its version of Arsenic and Old Lace at the Performing Arts Centre.
