Fading Hollywood filmstar Jefferson Steele jets in from America, but is soon devastated to discover that, contrary to his expectations, he will not be acting alongside Kenneth Branagh in Stratford-upon-Avon but with 'a bunch of amateurs' in Stratford St John, a sleepy Suffolk village.

The show runs from Thursday, June 6 until Saturday, June 8 and tickets are available from Aldborough Village Shop. Tickets will also be available on the door.
