Mission Senior Secondary is presenting the comedy play Arsenic and Old Lace.

This play, written by Joseph Kesselring opened in 1941 and ran for more than 1,333 performances on Broadway.

It is a farcical murder mystery full of gripping plot twists and surprises sure to keep you enthralled and laughing at the absurd hilarity of the story.

This play is riddled with one-liners and slapstick moments performed by Mission students. It is filled with something for everyone, a romantic engagement, eccentric aunts, bad brothers and police officers who aspire to be playwrights.

Tickets are $5 and the school will also be accepting donations of non-perishable food items to be donated to charity.

The show runs Thursday-Saturday Dec. 13-15 at 7 p.m. in the studio theatre at the west entrance of Mission Senior Secondary.
