A fading Hollywood star has taken on the role of King Lear thinking that the production will be in Stratford upon Avon with the RSC rather than in the tiny village of Stratford St John with a bunch of amateurs. This situation speaks for itself as an opportunity for much hilarity and Ian Hislop and his co-writer, Nick Newman, do not let us down. Ian Hislop needs no introduction and Nick Newman has written for Spitting Image and The Harry Enfield Show. Originally written as a film with Burt Reynolds as the has-been and chosen as the Royal Film Performance that year, the script was then adapted for the stage. The film is quite amusing but the stage version is much better.

Production Dates: 9th - 12th November 2022
