Ken Ludwig's 2004, hilarious farce about two down-on-their-luck actors who, so desperate to make a buck, plot to pass themselves off as two, long lost relatives of a dying, well to do woman so they can cash in on inheritance money. The only trouble is that they find out the long lost relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements and family hi-jinx ensue, as the actors put on dresses and makeup and try to con the family into believing that their intent is pure. The play takes place in and around York, PA. The year is 1952.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Sides will be provided.
