A Bunch of Amateurs

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until 1 June 2019

One event on 26 May 2019 at 2:00 pm

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 the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from 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!

“Terrific comedy packed with killer comic dialogue… plenty of twists and turns” ***** Whatsonstage

“Deliciously stuffed with Shakespeare…a laugh-a-minute” **** Mail on Sunday

Starring Brant Eustice as Jefferson Steele, Laura Antoniazzi, Cheryl Douglas, Lindsay Dunn, Petra Schulenberg, Tracey Walker, and Tim Williams.
