Murder! Mayhem! Madcap fun! Meet the Brewsters! Two charming sisters live in the family home in Brooklyn, offering rooms-to-rent, while populating their cellar with the remains of 'acceptable' lodgers. The nephew who lives with them thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, another nephew has a criminal record and is on the run, and the third nephew is a Broadway theater critic who is recently engaged to a lovely young woman. Family entertainment at its looniest!

Cast of Characters

Abby Brewster - A sweet, Victorian little darling who (spoiler) poisons elderly gentlemen. Should be able to do very basic movement. (F - 60+)

Martha Brewster - Sweet elderly woman with Victorian charm and manners who also (spoiler) poisons elderly gentlemen. Perhaps a bit more deferential than her sister. Should be able to do very basic movement. (F - 60+)

Mortimer Brewster - He is a dramatic critic unhappy with his profession and unaware of his aunties' antics. Must be adept at physical comedy and have precise comedic timing. (M - 20s-30s)

Jonathan Brewster - Mortimer's oldest brother, a sociopathic surgeon who bears a strange resemblance to Boris Karloff. (M - 30s-40s)

Dr. Einstein - Not THAT Dr. Einstein. A plastic surgeon and Jonathan's accomplice in crime. Should be able to do or learn a German accent. (M - 50s)

Teddy Brewster - Mortimer's older brother. Believes he is President Theodore Roosevelt. (M - 30s-40s)

Elaine Harper - Mortimer's (spoiler) fiancee and daughter of the minister who lives next door. She is surprisingly saucy for a minister's daughter. (F - 20s-30s)

The Rev. Dr. Harper - Elaine's protective father and reverend of the church next to the Brewsters. Will be double cast with Rooney or Witherspoon. (M - 50s)

Officer O'Hara - A police officer with somewhat pushy aspirations of writing for the theatre. (F - 20s)

Officer Brophy - Brooklyn police officer and friends with the Brewster aunts. (F - 20s-30s)

Officer Klein - Not-too-bright Brooklyn police officer and friends with the Brewster aunts. (M - 20s-30s)

Lieutenant Rooney - He is a very tough, driving, dominating officer. Will be double cast with Rev. Harper or Gibbs. (M - 40s-50s)

Mr. Witherspoon - Superintendent of the Happy Dale Sani-tarium. An elderly, tight-lipped disciplinarian. Will be double cast with Rev. Harper or Gibbs. (M - 60s+)
