LEADING LADIES
BY: KEN LUDWIG

Directed by Peg Girard

Synopsis
In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find their careers in a rut. They are currently performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. However, when they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. Hilarity ensues when it turns out the relatives are actually nieces and not nephews. Things get even more complicated when Leo falls madly in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Set in the 1950’s.
