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 a fading Hollywood action movie hero 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 for the stage by Ian Hislop ('Private Eye', 'Have I Got News For You') and Nick Newman ('Spitting Image', 'Murder Most Horrid') from their 2008 film, this laugh-out-loud comedy is stuffed with memorable characters and 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.
