The play is a farcical comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy,
homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise
to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men
by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch"
of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar
of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims); and a murderous brother who has received
plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein to conceal his identity and now looks like
horror-film actor Boris Karloff.
