A Bunch Of Amateurs Tour – Ian Hislop and Nick Newman’s comedy comes to theatre near you in 2020. From the authors of The Wipers Times and Trial By Laughter.
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 Shakespeare, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of starring alongside Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from ruthless 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!
Casting and further venues to be announced soon.
A Bunch Of Amateurs Tour is presented by Trademark Touring, Anthology Theatre and the Everyman Theatre
