From the comic genius of Ken Ludwig, this hilarious comedy set in the 50’s finds two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, 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 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. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, disguises, deception, and plot twists abound in this side-splitting farce.
