Bingley Little Theatre - Always a professional performance
Faded American TV star meets rural am-dram group to put on King Lear. What could go wrong?
by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman
Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steel arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of The Bard, but a sleepy village. And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast is 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!
