PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

The charming spinster sisters, Martha and Abby Brewster, have a peculiar penchant for murdering unsuspecting elderly, single, male houseguests. They have their nephew Teddy, who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, dispose of the bodies in the cellar. Another nephew, Jonathan, returns home after years of fleeing the authorities due to his “unofficial practice” of killing people. In the midst of this insanity, a third nephew, Mortimer, inadvertently stumbles across the product of his aunts' handiwork and scrambles to find an acceptable explanation that won’t get them all thrown in jail. Toss in a German accented, alcoholic, “Dr Einstein”, a confused fiancé, her reluctant father as well as the local authorities and you have the makings of a hilarious comedy
