Local Drama Group hires Hollywood actor to star in King Lear

West Bridgford Dramatic Society has landed a Hollywood Star to play King Lear in their next production.

Hurry to buy tickets as this scoop is expected to mean a big increase in ticket sales.  

Well, that is at least, the premise of their next production “A Bunch of Amateurs”.

Written by Nick Newman and Ian Hislop (who co-wrote Spitting Image), this comedy imagines what happens when a local drama group brings in some sparkle from the US, with a famous actor.

Rehearsals are underway for A Bunch of Amateurs which is the group’s next production, which will be performed at the end of February/early March.
