Arsenic and Old Lace, the Twilight Radio Theatre Season Finalé.

Twilight Radio Theatre

Press Release

Wednesday, March 27 2019

The Ides of March give way to April showers, and so Spring has sprung! Of course, this means that Twilight Radio Theatre will be performing their final show of the season, and they’ve pulled out all the stops for the big finalé! Get ready for that perfect combination: murder and comedy, all rolled into one, with TRT’s adaptation of Joseph Kesselring’s “Arsenic and Old Lace”. This well-travelled farce portrays the Brewster sisters, a couple of homicidal spinsters that have taken it upon themselves to provide “end of life” services to lonely old men by offering elderberry wine laced with a wee bit of arsenic. The rest of the nephews and cousins are not immune to the madness, as “it practically gallops” through the whole family. Teddy believes that he is Theodore Roosevelt, Johnathan is a psychopathic murderer, and Mortimer is, perhaps most insanely of all, a drama critic. It’s a dark comedy that will help bring on the light of Spring. 

The usual cast of characters: Adam Kerby, David Botten, Chris Jans and Kathy McIntyre will once again be joined by the multi-talented Jocelyn Hallett to make this a tour-de-force that you won’t want to miss! 

If you have yet to witness a TRT performance, you’ll be taken back to a time before cell phones, computers, and Netflix. Old-time radio dramas performed live on-stage allow for imagination to propel the audience into a world of mystery, murder, and of course, laughs! So get your tickets early for the April 10th, 11th, or 12th shows at the Surf “Sound Stage” - Twilight Radio Theatre productions often sell out quickly - available at North Road Sports or the Surf Lodge and Pub. $20.
