A Bunch of Amateurs written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman
Supper evening – 16th-19th May 2018 Directed by Meg Bray
Watch this space for Box Office dates, ticket prices and further details regarding the supper evening.
Keen to boost his flagging career, a fading Hollywood superstar, Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear at Stratford. However, he soon discovers that he’s not destined to tread the boards in Shakespeare’s birthplace alongside Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, but in the sleepy Suffolk village of Stratford St John in the company of a bunch of amateurs. Here his monstrous ego and vanity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic group of am-dram thespians.
As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he soon discovers some truths about himself …along with his inner Lear.
