Abby and Martha Brewster are two spinsters who perform good deeds and help charitable causes.  Well respected, they are also looking after a nephew, Teddy, who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, and are always welcoming to his brother Mortimer (a theatre critic) when he visits.  However, Mortimer discovers that some of their "charitable causes" are being cheerfully assisted into the next world by his aunts!!  There is also a third brother, Jonathan, who nobody has seen for 20 years and who nobody likes to talk about........

First performed in 1941 and set in the US, this farcical comedy has a wonderful set of characters and situations.
