A Bunch of Amateurs

1​7th - 22nd June. 7:30pm - 10:00pm. Chorley Little Theatre.

​​Written by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman

Directed by Barbara Wilcox

CADOS present an hilarious comedy from the star of Have I Got News For You.

In this hilarious comedy, 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 a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of 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 am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!
