Short Review ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’

Anna Watson

Persevering through broken door knobs, magnetic curtain rods falling and all the drama, Piedmont’s production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” was an incredible show. The plot is circled around two old aunties, Martha and Abby, who can’t help but be charitable to everyone they meet. However, they are ignorant of the danger it could cause. Their story is messily entangled with Mortimer’s, their nephew who wised up to the family business and gets caught up in ensuring their safety. Set in the 1940’s,“Arsenic and Old Lace” beautifully expresses the theme of loving your family despite their ridiculousness.
