A Bunch of Amateurs is a British comedy written by Ian Hislop of ‘Have I Got News for You’ and Nick Newman, made into a film in 2008 starring Burt Lancaster and Imelda Staunton , the premiere of which was in Leicester Square and attended by our Queen Elizabeth II. The award winning Anonymous Players who brought you ‘Blood Brothers’ and ‘Blithe Spirit’ are delighted to bring this hilarious comedy to Lytham , about washed-up Hollywood star Jefferson Steel who is deceived by his agent into playing King Lear in an amateur community production in a small English town. Expecting a suite at a fancy hotel, the actor finds himself lodging in a bed and breakfast. Steel's arrogance and pretensions barely allow him to conform to such indignities as rehearsing Shakespeare in a barn. But, among the enthusiastic locals, he slowly comes to rethink some of his assumptions and look at life in a whole new way. The professional tour opens this week in Cheltenham but you can see it right here. An innovative production with a highly talented cast, not to be missed!
