A Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman

10th - 14th May 2022

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £15.00 Concessions: £13.00


Description

As fading Hollywood action movie hero Jefferson Steele seeks to rescue his ebbing career, his agent lands him a gig playing King Lear in “Stratford”. Unfortunately, rather than the home of the RSC, it’s the wrong Stratford and the hapless star finds himself in a village hall with the local am-dram society.

There can only be trouble in store as the unassuming locals clash with the massive ego, tantrums, and lofty expectations of the petulant diva from Tinseltown.

Adapted from the successful 2008 film comedy, this stage production is deliciously stuffed with hilarious dialogue as the two extremities of the thespian world collide head-on.

__________

This amateur production of A Bunch of Amateurs is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

__________

SOCIALLY DISTANCED PERFORMANCE - TUESDAY 10th:

Our socially-distanced Tuesdays continue for this production.

For this performance, seating is divided into blocks so there is no one sitting directly in front or behind you, and there is at least one seat between your party and the party next to you.

These blocks are divided into parties of one, two, three, four, five or six people. Unavailable seats show as grey.

When booking, please select a block that is the number of seats you require.

For example, if you are a party of two please select a block that is only two seats. Please do not book two seats in a block of three available seats. Our system will not automatically take off sale the seats around you.

If you require any assistance or have access requirements, please do not hesitate to give the Box Office a ring on 0191 265 5020 (option 2) or email boxoffice@peoplestheatre.co.uk. 

We are proud to be a See It Safely accredited venue, in association with Society of London Theatres and UK Theatre.
