When Joseph Kesselring composed this classic dark comedy about sweet old aunts who poison elderly gentlemen as a charity, a man who is convinced that he's Teddy Roosevelt, a homicidal Boris Karloff look-alike, a German alcoholic plastic surgeon, a playwright/policeman who is terrible at both vocations, several well-meaning but oblivious characters around them, and a horrified protagonist trying desperately and hilariously to keep everyone else safe without making a scandal, he created something that is timeless, well-plotted, and wildly funny.

Of course, I might be kind of biased, since my theater group performed the play two years ago (I was Dr. Einstein). Am I praising it too highly? Read it and find out! (Or, if you don't like reading scripts, you could always watch the movie version with Cary Grant. It's also very good.)
