ABOUT THE PLAY In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, the year is 1958 and two British 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 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. Comedy ensues when they learn that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Even more laughs abound when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady's vivacious niece, Meg, who's engaged to the local minister.
