A Bunch of Amateurs
November 23, 2017 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:45pm, repeating until November 25, 2017
The Reject Theatre Company present Ian Hislop and Nick Newman’s hit comedy; A Bunch of Amateurs.
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!
