A Bunch of Amateurs, a play by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman
Jefferson Steel is an ageing Hollywood action hero. He is vain, insecure and out of work. Keen to boost his flagging career, he 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. A clash of cultures with comic complications ensues in this hilarious and ultimately moving comedy.
