A Bunch Of Amateurs by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman, a delightful comedy set in the world of amateur dramatics!
Hollywood action star Jefferson Steel finds his career on the slide and so jets to the UK to play the leading role in a production of King Lear. He arrives in ‘Stratford’ expecting to find the Royal Shakespeare Company & hilarity ensues…
There are 7 roles to cast (3M/4F) of varying & flexible ages.
Arrogant, brash, demanding, faded Hollywood movie star
Director of the Stratford Players & the driving force behind the company & their theatre
Jefferson’s daughter – neglected by her dad for years
Solicitor and wannabe theatrical great. Pompous & self-regarding, he believes he should play all the leading roles
Owner of the local B&B. Jolly, slightly dizzy and a big Jefferson fan!
Local handyman and stalwart of the Stratford Players. Keen as mustard but slightly dull (age flexible)
Glamorous wife of the sponsor backing the Players’ production. She’s passionate about the arts & smart but treated like a bimbo
