In Ken Ludwig’s hilarious comedy, two English Shakespearean actors, find themselves down on their luck in America. 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 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.
Meg Snider: Local girl, vivacious, warm, great sense of humor. Has unfulfilled dreams of the great big world outside of central Pennsylvania she has yet to experience. (Age: Early 30’s)
Duncan Wooley: Local minister, engaged to Meg. A good man, but fussy, headstrong, egocentric. (Age: Early 40’s)
Doc Myers: Local doctor, Chief Moose, likeable curmudgeon, boisterous, stocky, father to Butch. (Age: Mid 50’s)
Leo Clark: A clean‐shaven, Shakespeare actor from England (yes, English accent required), marginally gifted, charming yet mildly pompous, prone to temper tantrums, longs to achieve stardom… (Age: Early 40’s)
Jack Gable: A clean‐shaven, Shakespeare actor from England (yes, English accent required), Leo’s partner, easily dragged into Leo’s harebrained schemes (think Ethel to Leo’s Lucy), nice guy, longs to settle down… (Age: Late 30’s to Early 40’s)
Audrey: An extremely sweet and good‐natured, an “intelligent airhead.” Audrey roller‐skates.
Florence: An extremely crusty, terrible eyesight, wealthy, wily, ailing… or hypochondriac? (60+)
Butch: A little slow on the uptake, built like he played high school football, sincere. (20’s)
