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.
