”Arsenic and Old Lace”

Bristol Opera House

210 E. Vistula St., Bristol

“Arsenic and Old Lace” play centers around two Brooklyn spinsters, Martha and Abby Brewster, who run a Brooklyn rooming house where they take pity on the lonely gentlemen who come looking for a room, and put them out of their miseries with glasses of poisoned elderberry wine, according to information provided by Elkhart Civic Theatre.

Their nephew Mortimer is a drama critic who discovers their activity by accident, the release reads. Mortimer’s harmless brother Teddy believes he’s Teddy Roosevelt as he buries his aunts’ guests in the basement. When their homicidal brother Jonathan arrives with his own dead body, and a doofus cop by the name of O’Hara who dreams of being a playwright, tries to sell his bad play to Mortimer, it becomes obvious that just about everyone in the Brewster house is off their rocker.

It is a period piece set in the early 1940s. The movie, starring Cary Grant, is largely faithful to the play, although there are some significant changes, in particular to the ending. For more information, call Elkhart Civic Theatre at 574-848-5853.

“The Lonesome West”

South Bend Civic Theatre

403 N. Main St.

South Bend Civic Theatre presents “The Lonesome West” from this Friday, Saturday and Sunday and May 20-22.

Also, there’s a rumor in town that one of them may have murdered the father over a haircut-related insult. The local parish priest and a young girl from the community, also their bootleg whiskey supplier, attempt to keep the brothers from quarreling with hilarious results.

This fully staged production will be presented along with several staged readings of McDonagh’s connected plays.

“The Lonesome West” will be performed at the Warner Studio at South Bend Civic Theatre, 403 N. Main St., South Bend. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and May 20 and 21 and early shows at 2 p.m. Sunday and May 22.
