“Insanity doesn’t just run in our family, it practically gallops!” exclaims Mortimer whose two elderly, kindly, loveable aunts run a boarding house where the boarders all seem to end up, well, dead. And that’s not including his uncle who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt or the real villainous types who closely resemble actors out of early horror films. Broadway legend has that Joseph Kesselring tried to write a drama about two little old ladies who poisoned their roomers to collect their pensions. What he ended up with is pure, unadulterated, classic American comedy. Murphys Creek brings this gem, newly polished and gleaming to exuberant life.
