Auditions for Arsenic And Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring

Director: Daniel Eilola

Where: Lake Worth Playhouse - 713 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth FL, 33444

When: December 15th and 16th at 7pm (rehearsals begin January 5th and continue until opening)

Requirements: Prepare a one-minute comedic monologue from a play, may also be asked to read from the script
Please familiarize yourself with the play and NOT the film.

Show dates: February 26th – March 15th, 15 performances total

Synopsis:
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.

Elaine Harper -  An attractive girl in her twenties and Mortimer’s fiancée, Elaine is the daughter of the Rev. Dr. Harper. She is surprisingly wise in the ways of the world for a minister's daughter.
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
