The elderly Brewster sisters have a bad habit of luring lonely men into their home and poisoning them with arsenic-spiked elderberry wine. This comes as a surprise to their nephew Mortimer, who fears the two will get caught. As dubious as the plot sounds, it actually makes for many hilarious moments as Mortimer tries to stop his aunts as well as save them from incarceration. The plays quirky, lovable characters and screwball writing make for a surefire hit no matter whos behind it, but luckily for us, this time its in the hands of Houstons best.
