Description of Event: Audition Notice; A Bunch of Amateurs- by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman
Poole and Parkstone Players are thrilled to have secured the rights for ‘A Bunch of Amateurs’ by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, the hilarious adaptation of the 2008 film of the same name.
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 it is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village.
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!
There will be a play reading on Wednesday 18th October 7.30pm at Poole Day Centre, Commercial Road, Parkstone; auditions will be held on Wednesday 1st November 7.00 pm at same venue.
