Ambleside Players Autumn Production
Ambleside Players are proud to present
A Bunch of Amateurs
By Nick Newman & Ian Hislop
Directed by Moira Rowlinson
Tuesday 22nd October - Saturday 26th October
Bar opens upstairs at 6.45pm Hall opens at 7.00pm
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 instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!
