In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me a Tenor and Moon over Buffalo , two actors find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country. When they hear that an elderly woman is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives to get the cash. The trouble is they discover that her relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Posing as the nieces, the guys continue with their scheme. Romantic entanglements abound, especially when one of the actors falls head-over-stiletto heels in love with the woman’s vivacious niece.
“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
