A Bunch of Amateurs

14th April@7:30 pm - 9:30 pm BST

£8 – £60

Presented by the Idle and Thackley Theatre Group, A Bunch of Amateurs, by the comedy writing duo of Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, was originally written for the big screen and premiered in 2008.

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 Sir 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!

This amateur production of A Bunch of Amateurs is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
