About the show
In this uproarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing Scenes from Shakespeare on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an ailing old lady in York, PA is about to leave her fortune to her two long-lost English relatives, Max and Steph, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash.
But once they get to York, they find out that Max and Steph aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets Maxine and Stephanie that she finally gets a taste of it.
