A bunch of amateurs
Winton Players are delighted to be bringing this much anticipated production to the stage this Spring. A Bunch of Amateurs began rehearsals in January 2020 and over 2 years later it will finally take to the stage thanks to the unwavering dedication and enthusiasm of our very own 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 the Bard but a sleepy Suffolk village and the cast are a bunch of amateurs.
Jefferson's monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians - who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson's career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people...along with his inner Lear!
A Bunch of Amateurs will be performed at Petersfield Festival Hall from 28th to 30th April 2022. Evening performances at 7.30pm with a matinee at 2.30pm on 30th April.
