In the show, Jefferson, an ageing, out of work, vain, Hollywood action hero is desperate to revive his flagging career. When he arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford he believes he has landed the role of a lifetime … only to discover he has committed to star as King Lear for a dramatic society in Stratford St. John, a sleepy English village in Suffolk.
Instead of performing with Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judy Dench, Jefferson’s monstrous ego (and insecurity) is tested to the limit by this enthusiastic group of amateurs. As acting worlds collide and his career implodes, he discovers some home truths about himself!
It is rated M: Coarse Language, Sexual References and Adult Themes.
