Background


Following the success of The Wipers Times and Trial By Laughter the Everyman Theatre Company presents Ian Hislop and Nick Newman's hilarious comedy A Bunch of Amateurs.

Synopsis


Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford - only to find that this is not the birthplace of Shakespeare, but a sleepy Suffolk village.


And instead of starring alongside Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from ruthless developers.


Jefferson's monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson's career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself - along with his inner Lear!
