In this hilarious comedy, 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. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, the nephews are really nieces! Romantic entanglements abound when Leo falls in love with the old lady's niece, Meg, who's engaged to the local minister. Think Bosom Buddies meets Some Like it Hot.
