Past Productions - April 2018: A Bunch of Amateurs - by Nick Newman & Ian Hislop - directed by Andy Mills

Photography by Martin Smith www.origin8photography.com

Cast List

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero, Jefferson Steel, 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 the cast are a bunch of amateurs.

Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians - who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people - along with his inner Lear!
