As an aging Hollywood action hero accustomed to the perks of the job, he’s desperate to reinvigorate his waning career and is therefore convinced by his agent to accept a prestigious invitation to star in the British theatre playing King Lear at Stratford…. only the Stratford in question is Stratford St John, a sleepy Suffolk village.
