A Bunch of Amateurs at the Everyman Theatre

Thursday 23 April – Saturday 2 May 2020

Presented by Trademark Touring, Anthology Theatre and the Everyman Theatre Company
Written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman

from an original story by Jonathan Gershfield and John Ross

Following the success of The Wipers Times and Trial By Laughter the Everyman Theatre Company is proud to present Ian Hislop and Nick Newman’s hilarious 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 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!
