Synopsis: Billy and Tom, The Buckle brothers, are in big trouble: Tom’s infallible eye for slow horses has drained away all of Billy’s savings and he has borrowed from loan shark Pizza Face Petrillo, who now wants his money back or else! Involve a stuffy young lawyer, a hard drinking, man hungry housekeeper and a trio of beautiful young women, and you have the recipe for a laugh packed farce of twists, turns, puns and pratfalls as Tom strives mightily to compensate for Billy’s “habitual” errors. (Samuel French)

Stong Comedic Roles to be cast:

Billy Buckle (25-45) – One of the brothers. He is the mastermind of the zany plots.

Tom Buckle (25-45) – The younger brother. He is trying to help Billy get the inheritance to pay off the gambling debt. Some Drag performance involved.

Girl (20-30) – Beautiful young lady. Very gullible.

Jane (20-30) – Beautiful, smart and smartly dressed. The eventual heir.

Robert Fryburger (40-60) – Stuffy family attorney.

Pizza Face Petrillo (Fiftyish) – Mobster who has come to collect.

Virginia (40-60) – Sex starved alcoholic maid who has served The Buckle family for years.

Miss MacKintosh (20-30) – Mobster’s bimbo girlfriend
