A Bunch of Amateurs
Ian Hislop & Nick Newman
society/company: Chameleon Theatre Company (directory)
from: 25 Jul 2018 - 28 Jul 2018
venue: Ritchie Hall, Hursley Road, Chandlers Ford, Hants. SO53 2FT


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!
