A Bunch of Amateurs is a hilarious new play by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman
It has only very recently been made available and our production will be amongst the very first in the UK and certainly the first in the region.
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!
