PRIM-RAF Production – A Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman
Washed-up Hollywood star Jefferson Steel is deceived by his agent into playing King Lear in an amateur community production in a small English town.
Expecting a suite at a fancy hotel, the actor finds himself lodging in a bed and breakfast. Steel’s arrogance and pretensions barely allow him to conform to such indignities as rehearsing Shakespeare in a barn. But, among the enthusiastic locals, he slowly comes to rethink some of his assumptions and look at life in a whole new way.
