Theatre troupe presents Arsenic and Old Lace

Theatre in the country located halfway between downtown Mission and downtown Maple Ridge

An uproarious farce poking fun at plays involving murder, Arsenic and Old Lace, has been a crowd favourite since its debut in 1941, and now it comes to the Fraser Valley.

Theatre in the Country is presenting the classic dark comedy now, running until Sept. 23.

Featured in the cast are Mission actors Rachel Stevens and Glen Kask.

Arsenic and Old Lace pokes fun at murder mystery plays, horror movies and too-good-to-be-true little old ladies. The hero of the play, Mortimer, always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene — his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt, but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years.

Theatre in the Country has taken over the former Whonnock elementary school on 272nd Street and 100th Avenue, half way between downtown Mission and downtown Maple Ridge.

To enjoy the roast beef buffet and see the play, call 604-259-9737 or visit theatreinthecountry.com.
