A Bunch of Amateurs at Everyman Theatre

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Please note, this event has been postponed. When a washed-up Hollywood star unwittingly gets booked to play the lead in an English am-dram production, expect hilarious results.

In a last-ditch attempt to boost his failing career, a Hollywood action star heads to Stratford to play King Lear, in (what he believes to be) Shakespeare’s hometown. Unfortunately for Jefferson Steele and his unwitting cast members, he’s actually booked to appear in an amateur production, in a quiet Suffolk village of the same name.

As Jefferson’s ego clashes with the enthusiastic am-dram thespians, audiences can expect hilarious scenes in this comedy written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, and produced by the Everyman Theatre Company.

Taking to the stage at Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre from Thursday 23 April to Saturday 2 May 2020, don’t miss this modern comedy classic.
