A Bunch of Amateurs
Written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman. Directed by Michael Eustice.
The Play:

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 this is not the birthplace 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 himself – along with his inner Lear!

Roles Available in A Bunch of Amateurs:
Denis Dobbins – male, stage age 25-50

Denis is the town handyman, part time thespian and a bit of a wag. He’s star-struck by Jefferson and determined to find a solution to how to pluck Gloucester eyes out.

Dividing The Estate
Written by Horton Foote & Directed by Libby Drake
The Play:

Set in 1987, matriarch Stella Gordon is determined not to divide her family’s Texas estate, despite their declining wealth. But Stella is 85 years old, and her family can smell their inheritance. Mary Jo is deeply in debt and wants to divide the estate before her mother dies. Lewis drinks and gambles his anticipated inheritance. Grand-daughters have extravagant plans. Family members, including the servants, take sides in the debate, and wonder how much, if anything, there actually is to inherit. The play begins as light comedy in Act 1 but turns dark in Act 2 as tensions rise.
