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 the cast are a bunch of amateurs. Jefferson's monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians - who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson's career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people... along with his inner Lear!

"A bunch of amateurs" they certainly are not. This charming comedy was well performed by some amazing actors. I couldn't fault the show in anyway. The word brilliant was on my lips at the end of this show. You really have to see this play.
