Presented at Lowther Pavilion - 15 to 18 September 2021.

Directed by Tony Stone.





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 brithplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village.  And 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 himseld - along with his inner Lear !

A terrific comedy packed with killer comic dialogue ... plenty of twists and turns.
