The Play Group presents "A Bunch of Amateurs" by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman @ The Melville Theatre

Following our sell out success earlier this year with “Table Manners” The Play Group are back! We are delighted to bring you this hysterical comedy by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman.

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 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!
