First brought to the stage in 1941, Joseph Kesselring’s dark comedy is set in the home of the Brewsters - a family descended from the “Mayflower.” Abby and Martha keep house, while nephew Teddy - who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt - digs the Panama canal in the basement. The two spinsters have a small habit of populating the “canal” with the remains of lonely, elderly men, whom they have poisoned with homemade elderberry wine, laced with arsenic, strychnine and “just a pinch” of cyanide. Mortimer Brewster desperately tries to deal with his aunts and with Teddy, along with his criminal brother.
