Anthology Theatre and the Everyman Theatre Company present

A Bunch of Amateurs

Mon 4 - Sat 9 May 2020

Wed green matinee 2.30pm*
Sat matinee 2.30pm

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!
