Following an international theatre award in New York, a Devon-based theatre company brings Shakespeare’s classic Macbeth to life, in a second tour. Shakespeare’s classic drama of ambition, power and fate, first thought to be performed in 1606, is now brought to life in a dramatic new adaptation performing the original text, set in a post-World War 3, near-future wasteland.
Returns to the stage by popular request
Performed by a professional cast of locally based actors including cast members who have recently moved to Torbay from Los Angeles. This production returns to the stage by popular request, following its original tours in January 2019, following which the production won an international award in the Long Island Theatre Awards, in New York, in June 2019.
Scottish War Hero
“Macbeth” tells the tale of a Scottish war hero, who, tempted by ambition, power, and supernatural whisperings, begins a series of murders, to take and hold the throne. Returning home from war, Macbeth encounters three mysterious women, whose prophecy of kingship, sets in motion his ambition, and ultimately his fall into madness and blood…
The Players perform the original, uncut Shakespearian text, set in the dark aftermath of a nuclear WW3, in a post-apocalyptic design, with the exotic of the supernatural, and immersive soundscapes, to create Macbeths world in a new vision of the drama.
Performing William Shakespeare’s original unabridged text, the award-winning South Devon Players Theatre & Film Company, homegrown in Brixham, bring this drama to life in an all-new production. This show was performed in Jan/ Feb 2019 around Devon, to five star reviews and has won a theatre award in New York.
