A BUNCH OF AMATEURS
By Ian Hislop & Nick Newman
Ian Hislop and Nick Newman’s delightful comedy about a village drama group was originally conceived as a film starring Burt Reynolds and Imelda Staunton and selected for the Royal Film Performance in November 2008.
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.
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!
Directed by Coral Dickinson
