Characters: Leo Clark /Maxine- 30's Clean shaven, Shakespeare actor (English accent) possessing real talent, and a clever, quick-on-his-feet thinker, Leo contrives the scheme and directs it for the most part, posing as Maxine. When he falls in love with Meg, his skills are tested to their limits.
Jack Gable/Stephanie. 30's Clean shaven Shakespeare actor (English accent) of some talent. A reluctant partner in crime with Leo, more sincere and not so clever or conniving as Leo, who does know how to push Leo's buttons.
Meg Snider 30's. A bright,vivacious young woman who loves the theatre and secretly dreams to experience far more of the world than York can possibly offer, but apparently resigned to settle for less as she has agreed to marry Duncan, an older, stuffy minister.
Duncan Wooley.40s. A local minister, engaged but substantially older then Meg. A good man at heart, set in his ways and anxious to control Meg's inheritance money. He suspects that Leo and Jack are frauds and would like nothing more than to expose them as such.
Audrey-20-30. A sexy, attractive young woman, brighter than she appears to be at times. Ability to roller skate is required.
Chief Moose/Doc Meyers 40-50’s Florence's doctor and family friend and father of Butch. Doc is basically a genuine guy who married for love but encourages his son to marry into money. At some point, he misperceives that Stephanie (Jack) is in love with him.
Butch Meyers 20s-30s. Doc's stocky (played high school football) son who, notwithstanding his dad's advice, is in love with Audrey. He is honest and sincere although a bit slow-witted at times.
Florence Snider-60s or older. A kind but crusty old lady with terrible eyesight but a sharp mind and tongue.

Synopsis:
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 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.

Characters Summary: 2F (15, 32)
1M (34)

Characters: In each case although age is very much specified, I’ll be looking for age appearance rather than actual age of the actor.

The wonderful, warm relationship between Adam and Tabs is absolutely pivotal to the story ... I’ll be looking for actors who can develop this kind of rapport.

Set in Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula so local accents apply.


TABITHA, 15 **
She’s the epicentre of this story. She’s happy, funny, feisty and confident within her secure world, but has a major meltdown when the truth of her story is abruptly revealed, so the actor must be able to believably demonstrate this range: happy and flippant to raging, hurt, shutting down.

There are some heavy themes, and for this reason I will not necessarily be looking only at actors aged 15ish but will be interested in older actors who can play a convincing 15 year old.

ADAM, 34
Solid character, a really nice bloke. A tradie. He’s done a great job of raising Tabs, arising possibly from his own background.. lost and then found.

HELEN, 32
Cashier, runner, damaged, misunderstood. Carrying some heavy emotional baggage.

Synopsis: Tabitha. Tabs. A feisty, confident fifteen year old who has been raised since toddlerhood by single dad Adam. A typical teen: outspoken, messy, glued to her smartphone listening to music and constantly texting. Out of the blue, her birth mother makes contact and, against Adam’s will, Tabs determinedly leaves for a short stay with Helen - where her secure world is turned upside down. How does Tab deal with the truth of her story?

A look at the spectrum of parental love. Three intertwined stories by local writer, Kerry Drumm, told with warmth, humour and love.
