The Players Club of Swarthmore Theater has a fun "Trick and Treat" on stage this October. The Brewster Sisters seem so sweet... but their elderberry wine (the treat) packs a real punch (that would be the trick). In Arsenic and Old Lace - opening October 21st.
The ladies' nephew, Mortimer, has just dropped in on his aunts to tell them about his engagement....But the poor guy has no idea what's about to hit him. Audiences have been roaring at this screwball comedy for six decades. Like a good wine, these laughs only improve with age.
Director Bridget Dougherty of Philadelphia has brought in some heavy-duty talent to deliver those laughs. David DiLiberto of Phoenixville heads up the cast as the exasperated Mortimer. He's joined by Joy Hubbard of Mt. Laurel, NJ; Ruth K. Brown of Elkton, MD; Jim Fryer of Lansdowne; Bill King of Collingdale; Ken L. Locicero of Thornton; Keara M. Piekanski of Media; David Cashell of Springfield; Michael Bloh of Newtown Square; Benjamin Kerr of Drexel Hill; Liam MacDonna of Wilmington, DE; Bill Haburcak of Secane, and PatRick Martin of Havertown.
There will be a community discussion following the matinee performance on Sunday, October 23rd. Any ticket holders who wish to do so can remain following the performance and chat with the actors and production staff.
