An hilarious comedy about the redemptive power of theatre, based on the 2008 hit film starring Burt Reynolds.
Washed-up Hollywood star Jefferson Steele arrives in England thinking he’s due to appear onstage at the RSC in Stratford-Upon-Avon but instead finds he’s signed up for “The Stratford Players” - an amateur dramatics group based in a barn in Suffolk. While the locals are delighted to have such a big star in their midst, the selfish American considers himself too big for such a setting. 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!
