A Bunch of Amateurs’ by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman. 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 the cast are a bunch of amateurs. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians – who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people… along with his inner Lear!

Performances at 8pm on 16th–18thand 21st–25th June, 2022.

Contact the Box Office at boxoffice@neweraplayers.org for tickets, which are £10 each.

Venue: New Era Theatre, St George’s Centre, Andover Road, Wash Common, Newbury RG14 6NU
