This production contains strong language.

In this engaging comedy, fading Hollywood legend, the egotistical Jefferson Steele, arrives in Stratford to play ‘King Lear’. To his horror he discovers that this particular ‘Stratford’ is a small village in Suffolk and that he is to work with an amateur dramatic company desperate to save its theatre from imminent closure.

In a plot packed with twists and turns, the ultimate humbling of the ‘proud’ man mirrors the fate of Shakespeare's Lear; Steele discovers a number of painful home-truths, and events provide a heart-warming denouement. Rich in comic dialogue, this is truly a ‘love-letter to amateur theatre’.
