A Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman

Date:
Thu, 23 May 2019 to Sat, 1 Jun 2019
Presenter:
Red Phoenix Theatre Inc
Description:
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, Derek Crawford, Cheryl Douglas, Lindsay Dunn, Petra Schulenberg, and Tracey Walker
