Show synopsis: Drama critic Mortimer (William Killinger) is the only sane member of the Brewster family. His brother, Teddy (Jackson Lehr), believes he’s President Roosevelt, and happily buries poisoned old men in the Panama Canal (cellar) after his spinster aunts, Abby and Martha (Jordan Killinger and Skylar Armstrong), put them out of their misery with arsenic-laced elderberry wine. The third (psycho maniac) brother, Jonathan (Cameron Smith), returns to the family home, accompanied by his drunk plastic surgeon friend, Dr. (Herman) Einstein (Gabrien Deutsch), and a corpse.


Pastor’s daughter and fiancée, Elaine Harper (Aislinn Bohot), her father, Rev. Dr. James Harper (Gabe Soliz), and a trio of bumbling cops (Elizabeth Chia, Erika Ritchey, and Christian White), take some time to figure out the true dynamics of the Brewster household. Add cranky old man, Mr. Gibbs, played by Mr. Jim Keeling, and the superintendent of a “funny farm,” doubled by Christian White, and you have more than enough ingredients to stir up a ton of laughter.
