A Bunch of Amateurs

A comedy by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman

On-stage at the Duchess Theatre, West Gate, Long Eaton
Thursday 21st - Saturday 23rd June 2018


When a fading Hollywood action star is offered the chance to play King Lear at Stratford he jumps at it - but it turns out it's Stratford St Mary, not Stratford on Avon! To add insult to injury, the cast doesn't include anyone from Downton Abbey, but is made up of the local Amdram group!

 Will he swallow his pride for the sake of avoiding bad publicity? Will he accept the challenge? Will he ever be able to learn the lines? or will he head for the nearest airport back to LA?
