A Bunch of Amateurs

Thu 23rd Apr - Sat 2nd May

Following new guidance issued by the Government and our industry body, UK Theatre, the Everyman Theatre is suspending all operation (including performances, workshops, tours, Education and Community activity and our catering operation) for a limited time period.

We will continue to monitor the situation and heed advice with the focus being on maintaining the continued health and safety of our staff and the public, and returning to provide a valued service when safe to do so.

Ticket holders for A Bunch of Amateurs will be contacted individually via email or telephone (if we do not possess your email address), with instruction on obtaining refunds or exchanges.

Following the success of The Wipers Times and Trial By Laughter the Everyman Theatre Company is proud to present Ian Hislop and Nick Newman's hilarious comedy A Bunch of Amateurs.

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 Shakespeare, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of starring alongside Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from ruthless 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!
