A Bunch of Amateurs

Jefferson Steel is an aging Hollywood action hero. He's vain, insecure and out of work. In a final attempt to find Jefferson Steel work, his incompetent LA agent stumbles upon the perfect role playing King Lear at Stratford-opon-Avon. But, Jefferson arrives in the UK to dicover that instead of an RSC production, he is booked to tread the boards with an amateur society in sleepy English village Stratford St John. A clash of culture with comic complications ensues in this funny and ultimately moving comedy.
“Terrific comedy packed with killer comic dialogue… plenty of twists and turns”  ~ Whatsonstage
“Deliciously stuffed with Shakespeare…a laugh-a-minute” ~ Mail on Sunday
