Leading Ladies


A comedy by Ken Ludwig
Directed by Jo Phenix                                                  Stage Manager Erin Montgomery

A Century Theatre Guild production

Two 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 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 that the relatives aren’t nephews but nieces. They decide to go ahead with the plan anyway. Romantic entanglements abound when Leo falls for the old lady’s niece, Meg, who is engaged to the local minister. Meg knows there’s an exciting world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine” and “Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.

“Ludwig’s newest farce is so funny it will make sophisticated and reasonable men and women of the 21st century cackle till their faces hurt.”                      Houston Press.
