Auditions for our May comedy: A Bunch of Amateurs
directed by Russ Kirton
We have now have selected a full cast for this hilarious play written by Nick Newman and Ian Hislop (yes, the one from the ‘Have I Got News For You‘ and Private Eye).
Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find this is not the Bard’s birthplace, but a sleepy Suffolk village. Instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers…..
Performance dates: 23rd, 24th, 25th May.
