Lymington Players Presents 'A Bunch of Amateurs' by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman

A Comedy where Hollywood & Amateur Dramatics Collide. Directed by Colin Keir.
Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood star Jefferson Steel 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.
