Seven plays will be presented from January 22 to March 16 by Tabs Productions and Rumpus Theatre Company. Karen Henson and John Goodrum who run the respective companies will direct and perform in the plays.

Comedy thriller Arsenic and Old Lace (pictured) gets the season underway tomorrow (Tuesday, January 22) and runs at the Pomegranate until Saturday, January 26.
