Audition / Call Type: Theater

A hilarious comedy that centers on two sweet elderly sisters who are known for their acts of charity. Unfortunately that charity includes poisoning lonely old men who come to their home looking for lodging. They are assisted in their “mercy killings” by a mentally challenged nephew who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt.
