In this uproarious comedy 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 a local old lady plans to leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, Jack and Leo resolve to pass themselves off as her relatives and get the cash. Complications ensue when they find out that the relatives 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, who is anything but vivacious! 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. “Leading Ladies is consistently funny − indeed, increasingly hilarious as it progresses.” ~ Houston Chronicle.
