Set in 1950’s Pennsylvania, this hilarious comedy follows two struggling Shakespearean actors, Leo Clark and Jack Gable. Down on their luck, the duo end up performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge Circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. They are invariably booed at every stop.
When Leo and Jack hear that Florence, an old lady in York, PA, is about to leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as the missing relatives. They soon discover the relatives are in fact, nieces, but desperate for the money, they gamely (and foolishly) arrive in York posing as “Stephanie” and “Maxine”.
Romantic entanglements abound when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with Florence’s vivacious niece Meg!
A “Some Like It Hot” crowd pleaser, The Houston Press says: "Leading Ladies is so funny, it will make sophisticated and reasonable men and women cackle…"
