Arsenic and Old Lace


Hailed as one of the greatest screwball comedies ever made, MADC proudly present Arsenic and Old Lace. The West End hit ran for 1,337 performances after it opened.

This fast-paced, madcap, slightly sinister comedy should delight anyone who loves to laugh. The plot is complicated, but it all starts from Mortimer - Edward Mercieca frightful realization that his two sweet elderly aunts - Polly March and Marylu Coppini have developed a very bad habit. It appears they have been poisoning lonely old men. But they mean well; they consider doing it a charity. They then leave it to their bugle blowing nephew Teddy - Colin Fitz, who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt to take them to the Panama Canal - the cellar and bury them. 



Written by Joseph Kesselring this hilarious comedy is directed by Josette Ciappara.

The cast also features Kate de Cesare,  Colin Willis, Joe De Pasquale and Renato Dimech amongst others.
Performances will take place on the 20th, 21st, 22nd, 27th, 28 and 29th April and will commence at 8pm.
Booking is now open at the Manoel Theatre.
