Many families have skeletons in their closets. But, for the fictional Brewster family — the stars of Curtain Call Theatre’s latest production, “Arsenic and Old Lace” — there are literally skeletons in the closet… and the basement.

The play focuses on Mortimer Brewster, who must deal with his family and decide whether or not to go through with a promise to marry his next door neighbor, Elaine Harper, whom he loves.
