About the play

The play is set in the living room of the Brewster residence in Brooklyn, New York.

Joseph Kesselring wrote Arsenic and Old Lace back in 1939. The play enjoyed a successful run on Broadway of over 1,400 performances, but it is probably best remembered as a 1944 film starring Cary Grant, Priscilla Lane, Raymond Massey and Peter Lorre.
