Event Description

Insanity runs in the Brewster family. It practically gallops! After a series of Houseful shows, Bangalore little theatre brings this uproarious farce by veteran playwright Joseph Kesselring. - Arsenic and Old Lace to Jagriti, Whitefield. Mortimer Brewster is a drama critic whose life is turned upside down when he discovers that his two spinster aunts have taken to poisoning their gentlemen house guests. Complicating matters further, Mortimer’s brother Teddy believes he is President Theodore Roosevelt and keeps digging graves in the basement. Things turn upside down when his long-lost criminal brother Jonathan arrives with his accomplice, Dr. Einstein. Take a sneak peak of an insane household that has competing Serial Killers, U.S Presidents, Shakespeare in cop gear, snobbish Theatre Critics, drunk Plastic Surgeons, and a perpetual line of dead bodies all while an ear shattering bugle is piercing your ears every few minutes. It is an hilarious and fast-paced script that explores themes of morality, family loyalty and the fine line between sanity and madness.
