"A Bunch of Amateurs" is a hilarious theatrical comedy by Nick Newman and Ian Hislop. The play follows the misadventures of Jefferson Steel, a fading Hollywood star who mistakenly arrives in a small English village to play the title role in King Lear, believing it to be a prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company production. However, he quickly discovers that he's landed in an amateur community theatre production instead. As Jefferson grapples with his massive ego and the quirks of the amateur actors, the clash of cultures and personalities creates uproarious situations and unexpected friendships. This uproarious comedy explores the transformative power of the theatre and the universal human desire for recognition and acceptance.
