THE CLASSIC black comedy Arsenic and Old Lace will be the latest offering from Redditch and Bromsgrove theatre group All and Sundry.

Running at Redditch’s Palace Theatre from Wednesday to Saturday, March 28 to 31, the story centres around theatre-hating drama critic Mortimer Brewster who tries to decide whether to marry the woman he loves or not.

While he’s doing that he has to contend with his crazy family, which includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men, a brother who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt and a murderous brother who, after having plastic surgery to conceal his identity, looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff.

Performances take place at 7.30pm each evening and there is also a Saturday matinée at 2.30pm. Tickets costing £11 (£10 concessions) for Wednesday/Thursday/Saturday matinée and £12 (£11) for Friday/Saturday are available from www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01527 65203.
