Synopsis

This romantic farce centers on two D-list English actors, Jack and Leo, who 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 in the 1950s. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave two-thirds of her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, Max and Steve, they resolve to pass themselves off as these beloved relatives and get the cash. When they discover that ‘Max’ and ‘Steve’ are really ‘Maxine’ and ‘Stephanie,’ they continue, undaunted, in drag. Complicating matters, Leo falls head-over-heels in love with the old lady’s niece, Meg, heir to the other third of the fortune, and Jack falls in love with Audrey, a friend of the old lady’s family, necessitating that they play both the nieces and themselves. Meg, who’s engaged to the local stuffy minister, 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. What follows is a classic farcical pastiche full of deceptions, romances, chaos, lots and lots of quick costume changes.
