This year Universitat a l'Abast Universitat a l'Abast presents "Arsenic and Old Lace", a classic in the black comedy represented many times since the debut in 1941 in New York, by theatre companies from all over the world.

The Brewster sister, two adorable grandmothers always eager to help everybody, live in an old family house, near the cementery of Brooklyn. All starts when their nephew Mortimer, well-known reviewer of theatre, finds out, accidentally, that some of his aunt's charity works are... quite special. The arrival of another nephew, Jonathan, the black sheep in the family, will trigger the action.
