Leading Ladies
by Ken Ludwig
Two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. 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 in a screwball comedy that "will make sophisticated and reasonable men and women of the 21st century cackle till their faces hurt." - Houston Press

Waiting for Godot
by Samuel Beckett
“Two dilapidated bums wait for Godot, a personage who will explain their interminable insignificance, or put an end to it. …It is a tragic view. Yet, in performance, most of it is brilliant, bitter comedy…It is a portrait of the dogged resilience of a man's spirit in the face of little hope.” – The New York World-Telegram
From the master of the Theatre of the Absurd, this classic of existentialism and the modern theatre stands alone in its ability to challenge actors and audiences with art that is "…moving, often funny, grotesquely beautiful and utterly absorbing." —NY Post.
