St Peters Church Hall, Frimley

Saturday, 31 Aug - Saturday, 7 Sep

£5.34 - £8.54

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!

Saturday 31st August at 7:30pm and again on Saturday 7th September at both 2:00pm and 7:30pm at St. Peter's Church Hall, Frimley, GU16 7AQ.

Tickets are £8 (£5 for under-16s & over-60s).

As with all Brightlight productions, at least 10% of ticket sales will be donated to local cancer charity, KatCanDo in support of the amazing work they do for our community.

This amateur production of “A Bunch of Amateurs” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

Brightlight Theatre

Brightlight Theatre Company is an amateur theatre group based in the Farnborough and Frimley area, in Hampshire and Surrey. We perform at least three shows a year (comedies, mysteries, dramas) and also work on smaller studio productions which we sometimes perform to the public and sometimes just to the group as this gives us a chance to explore something different. We've also been very successful in local Festivals winning Best Costume in 2018, Best Lighting in 2017 and Best New Play in 2016. We perform three productions a year in April, September and December at St. Peter's Church Hall in Frimley. A percentage of all our ticket sales are donated to KatCanDo in support of the amazing work they do to support local cancer patients.
