Summary
Everyone -- including mystery bookstore owner Annie Laurance -- loves Arsenic and Old Lace. But something wicked is poisoning a local summer stock production as cast members stab each other in the back and props are sabotaged. The star, aging Hollywood beach-blanket hunk Shane Petree, butchers his lines -- while getting top billing in bedrooms around town. No wonder somebody wants to draw his final curtain. Then a pompous prosecutor tries to pin a murder on Max, Annie's own leading man. To prove her Darling's innocence, Annie snoops around the greasepaint and glitter of the Arsenic cast's backstage life. But she'll be next to star in a knock-'em-dead showstopper scene if she doesn't watch it..
