Fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele sees an opportunity toboost his career by accepting an offer to play King Lear at Stratford. But whenhe arrives in England he is horrified to find that instead of appearing withThe Royal Shakespeare Company, Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, he isactually performing in a sleepy Suffolk village with an enthusiastic amateurtheatre company, the Stratford Players, who are trying to save their theatrefrom property developers.


Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limitby the am-dram thespians. But as the two acting worlds collide a story worthyof the Bard himself reveals itself – with rivalry, hidden passions, familystrife, and a voyage of self-discovery for all the characters.
