Arsenic and Old Lace

By Joseph Kesselring

July 10,11 17,18,19 24,25 31, August 1,2
Preview July 9 & Matinees July 19 & August 2

In this farcical black comedy, we meet the Brewster family, descended from the "Mayflower," and composed of two charming spinster aunts who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and another brother, Mortimer, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry.

Directed by Robin Frome

5 out of 5 stars in today's (Friday) Republican-American for Talley's Folly. Here's a snippet:

"(Mike) Wright is so perfect for this role and so fine an actor that he is just the type of actor who could bring the proverbial telephone book to life. (Stacy) Frome as Sally Talley delivers a formidable performance with confidence and experience obvious and clearly present in the the production."

Here are some early soundbites from Mary Hembree's review of Talley's Folly which will be in this week's Citizen News.

"To say Michael Wright has command of the stage would be an understatement."

"It was not the design of Lanford Wilson to make Sally Talley the center of his play and Stacy-Lee
Frome carried that responsibility perfectly. In my mind, she looked at Matt Friedman as though she had something to say but she couldn’t, she wasn’t allowed. Conveying that concept from the stage is a gift."

"John Bolster is a talented musician, strumming, picking and singing - a perfect complement to this play."

"Robin Frome directed Michael Wright and Stacy-Lee Frome in artistic synchronicity, evoking from each strong performances."

Thanks Mary!
