A Bunch of AmateursKeen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford. That's the starting point for Ian Hislop and Nick Newman's comedy A Bunch of Amateurs, the very first play they wrote, which comes to Richmond Theatre as part of a UK tour. This "love letter to the world of amateur theatre" (as its authors describe it) follows the success of The Wipers Times and Trial By Laughter. The lead finds he's sharing the spotlight with a cast of enthusiastic amateur thespians and has to dig deep to find his inner strength - and discover his inner Lear.

 

About Richmond Theatre

The Victorian Richmond Theatre, which opened on 18 September 1899 with a performance of As You Like It, is one of the best examples of work by theatrical architect Frank Matcham. The interior is ornate, with lots of gilt detailing and plush fabrics. More about Richmond Theatre
