Leading Ladies

Event image

By Ken Ludwig

Set in York, Pennsylvania in 1958, this farce centres on two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors, Leo Clark and Jack Gable.

The pair discover through a newspaper that Florence, an older ailing woman, has been unable to find Max and Steve, her sister's children who moved away to England as children in order to include them in her multi-million dollar inheritance.

They decide to pose as Max and Steve to claim portions of it. When they discover that "Max" and "Steve" are actually "Maxine" and "Stephanie," they continue on, undaunted, in drag.
