HAVERHILL, MA - When is a simple glass of elderberry wine not so simple, when it is served up by the maniacal Brewster sisters in “Arsenic and Old Lace,” which will be presented by Northern Essex Community College’s Top Notch Players on November 9 and 10, at 7:30 p.m., and November 8 at 4:00 p.m., in the Chester W.

This adaptation will be directed by NECC students Brianne Beatrice of Marblehead, MA.
