Two down on their-luck Shakespearean actors 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. They decide to take on the roles. After all, inclusion in her multi-million dollar inheritance could turn things around. So when “Max” and “Steve” turn out to be “Maxine” and “Stephanie”, they continue on, undaunted, in drag. But when Leo falls for Florence’s actual niece Meg, and Jack swoons for Florence’s part-time aide Audrey, things become a little more complicated, and the laughs, well, they reach fever pitch. “Leading Ladies is consistently funny-indeed, increasingly hilarious as it progresses.” – Houston Chronicle
