A BUNCH OF AMATEURS
by Ian Hislop
& Nick Newman
23rd July to
Fading Hollywood action hero, Jefferson Steele touches down in the UK to take on the role of a lifetime – Shakespeare’s tragic King Lear. Only this isn’t Stratford upon Avon, but Stratford St John in the middle of Suffolk, and his co-stars are not the famous names he expected but local amateurs who are fighting to save their beloved theatre from closure.
Ian Hislop (editor of Private Eye, star of BBCTV’s ‘Have I got News for You’) and cartoonist Nick Newman first wrote ‘A bunch of Amateurs’ as a film. The stage play is a little more recent and premiered at the Watermill, Newbury in 2014.
