In Frank Kesselring’s 1939 comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace,” a theater critic debates whether to marry the woman he loves as he deals with his is crazy family. Really crazy. His two elderly aunts wield a mean bottle of homemade elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine and a pinch of cyanide, one brother thinks he’s Theodore Roosevelt, and the other is a psychopath. Lake City Playhouse brings this classic tale to the stage beginning Friday with a run through May 18. Performances are Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. at the playhouse, 1320 E. Garden Ave., Coeur d’Alene. Call the box office at (208) 667-1323 or visit www.lakecityplayhouse.org for tickets and information.
