Winter Play Opening Night: Leading Ladies

Join the Deerfield Club of New England for the opening night of the winter theater production: Leading Ladies.

Our pre-show reception will start at 6:00 pm with a chance to chat over drinks and hors d’ouevres. Later, Director Catriona Hynds will join us and share her behind-the-scenes insights about this comedic work by Ken Ludwig.

About the play: 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 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, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.

Please RSVP by February 13, via the registration form below.
