William Shakespeare's Macbeth
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
“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.
Winners of the 2017 Epic Award for England, an annual national award for groundbreaking innovation and creativity in the arts, and now the Theatre Partner award in the 2019 Long Island Theatre Awards, the South Devon Players specialise in high-quality productions based on classical texts, and researched history, developing and showcasing the talent of actors and other creatives from around South Devon.

The South Devon Players Theatre & Film Company
We are an award winning, ambitious non-profit, theatre & film production team, with our own actors agency, from the beautiful fishing port of Brixham; Devon (in South West England). The South Devon Players is a team of dedicated, career-orientated performers, of all ages, who are working on creating careers in theatre and film. We always welcome new members, who share our ethos, and who, regardless of previous experience, want to join a lively, friendly, hardworking team of performers, hone old skills & develop new ones, and create high quality new stage and film productions. We perform theatre shows in Brixham, around Torbay, and South Devon, based on historical events, classical stories and mythology. We also make period drama films and web-series productions, around Devon and Cornwall, which has become a large percentage of our annual projects. We run a casting agency for experienced, vetted, local actors as well, as a service to people in the local area. This is fee-free . Any funds raised by the agency service go back into our productions and projects. The South Devon Players was founded in late 2005 by two Brixham-based performers who were seeking performance opportunities in the Southwest, and performed our first production in the summer of 2006. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, and are now growing rapidly, with awards won and a rapidly increasing member and audience base.
