Tickets are now on sale for Huntingdon Drama Club’s autumn production A Bunch of Amateurs.
The play, written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman (Have I Got News For You, Private Eye, The Wipers Times, Murder Most Horrid, will run from November 15-17 at All Saint’s Church, in Huntingdon.
A Bunch of Amateurs is directed by the drama club’s artistic director, Dean Laccohee and is based on the 2008 movie of the same name starring the late Burt Reynolds in the leading role.
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 the sleepy Suffolk village Stratford St John. And instead of Sir 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 amateur dramatic thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear.
