Lie, Cheat and Genuflect

Lie, Cheat and Genuflect
by William Van Zandt and Jane Milmore

Directed by Leisa Grimes


The Buckle Brothers, Billy and Tom, Laurel-and-Hardy types, are in big trouble: Tom’s losing streak at the racetrack has drained Billy’s savings, and Billy just foundout about it. The real trouble is coming from loan shark Pizza Face Petrillo, who gave Tom a loan. Pizza Face is calling in the debt now! Grandfather Buckle’s willis about to be read, but the two black sheep doubt they’ll be included. What else to do but hatch a crazy scheme to get away with the entire fortune?
Add a stuffy lawyer, a lush of a housekeeper and three lovely ladies, and you have the makings of a laugh-filled farce of twists, turns and pratfalls.Not to mention the mistaken identities, the baby, guns, a nun on the run and … boxer shorts?
