QHS Winter Play Arsenic and Old Lace

The Quincy Senior High School theatre department will open 2019 with the well-known farce Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring.  The comedy takes place in Brooklyn, New York during the 1940s at the home of the Brewster family.  Mortimer Brewster has a steady job at a NYC newspaper, he’s newly engaged and returns home to tell his sweet spinster aunts of his engagement.  Home is a bit chaotic with a brother who believes to be Teddy Roosevelt, a maniacal brother, Jonathan, who is missing and a few uncovered secrets about his two dear aunts.  An uproarious farce on plays involving murder, Arsenic and Old Lace has become a classic!  Show dates are February 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 pm at the QHS Theatre.  Tickets go on sale February 1st by calling the QHS Music Office at 217.224.3774.
