When young Patrick Dennis loses his father, his wonderfully self-centered, witty and eccentric Aunt Mame, a Fifth Avenue socialite, welcomes him with open arms and introduces him to a life he never imagined. Unaccustomed to children, but not so to interesting friends, parties and the finer things in life, Mame introduces Patrick to a life full of madcap parties, silly escapades and other surprises. Patrick embraces his new home with enthusiasm. Even a stock market crash can’t hinder Mame, who throws herself into a series of unsuccessful jobs and eventually finds a wealthy Southerner to protect her way of life. Love can be wild, fun, and have no bounds when Mame is around.  Mame is a heartwarming comedy that takes us on a journey of love, acceptance and hysterically wild fun over an 18 year period; 1928 to 1946.

The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the "Mayflower," but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero Mortimer Brewster is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein, to conceal his identity and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff.

Abby Brewster - A darling lady in her sixties or early seventies who poisons elderly men, Abby is the sister of Martha and aunt to Teddy, Jonathan, and Mortimer.
Martha Brewster - A sweet elderly woman with Victorian charm who poisons elderly men, Martha is the sister of Abby and an aunt to Teddy, Jonathan, and Mortimer.

Teddy Brewster - Nephew of Abby and Martha Brewster, Teddy is a man in his forties who thinks that he is Theodore Roosevelt.
Jonathan Brewster - Nephew of Abby and Martha Brewster, Jonathan is a psychopath who has numerous murders to his credit and no scruples whatsoever. I bit oversensitive to his "new" appearance.
Dr. Einstein - A plastic surgeon and an alcoholic in his fifties, Dr. Einstein has changed Jonathan's face three times, with his most recent work resulting in a Boris Karloff resemblance.
The Rev. Dr. Harper - Minister and father of Elaine. A bit pompous and protective, very ministerial in his manner.
Officer O'Hara - A police officer, O’Hara is a would-be playwright who pesters Mortimer to read his play.
Officer Brophy /Lieutenant Rooney - A flatfoot Brooklyn cop with the usual charm of a police officer / A tough and dominating police officer
