When two hard-pressed actors find themselves in a bind, they turn to their most unlikely role yet to help see their way out! This Saturday, make plans to attend Leading Ladies at the Sheldon Vexler Theatre and find out what happens when Jack and Leo must assume the role of upper class society women!
A highly combustible comedy about mistaken identities, 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 Pennsylvania.
When they hear that an old lady in York 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! Fear not – they have women’s costumes in their show trunk. What could possibly go wrong?
"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
The Sheldon Vexler Theatre is a state-of-the-art critically-acclaimed black box theatre. The theatre's namesake was a talented writer, wordsmith, and lover of words. He wrote, directed, and performed in a number of plays, and was active in the community. The Vex is known to many as an experimental theatre where shows often have a "Vex twist" – something that makes the production truly unique to the theater.
