Tickets are on sale in the shop for the Crown Players latest production – “A Bunch of Amateurs”. There are 3 shows at 7.30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday the 28th, 29th and 30th of March. Tickets cost £8.
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 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!
If you can’t get to the shop, tickets are also available online via www.eventbrite.com .
