A Bunch Of Amateurs

A Bunch Of Amateurs

More laughs than you can shake a speare at!

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 Stony Stratford, an historic town now part of Milton Keynes. 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!
