A Bunch of Amateurs

Written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman

Directed by Derek Holland

11th to 13th April in the village Hall at 7:30pm

This hilarious play written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman concerns a small amateur dramatic society who are about to lose their barn/theatre because the council have stopped their grant. They are The Stratford Players and need to raise £50k.

They decide to get in touch with Hollywood Producers and finally manage to get the services of a fading Hollywood actor – Jefferson Steele – to come to Stratford to play King Lear. He obviously thinks he is coming to the RSC at Stratford –upon-Avon, which will rejuvenate his career, but he is actually coming to Stratford St. John in Suffolk! – to be cast with amateurs for little or no money and the fun begins.
