This is a full, original uncut text production of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, performed within a post-apocalyptic setting, Suitable for all ages. 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. Performed by a professional cast of locally based actors this production will tour across South Devon, from November 2023, and well into 2024. Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's best known dramas, alongside King Lear, Orthello, Hamlet, and Romeo & Juliet. It tells the tale of a Scottish war hero, who, tempted by ambition and power, and supernatural whisperings, and manipulated by his wife, 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. This production design combines the dark aftermarth of a nuclear WW3, the exotic of the supernatural, and dramatic lighting, with immersive soundscapes to create Macbeths world in a new vision of the drama. Months of intensive rehearsal and preparation are taking place to prepare the show ahead of the tour. The company are also bringing the show to schools and classes as well, and streaming the production globally. The South Devon Players previously performed this show in 2019 on tour around the southwest show streamed worldwide, winning theatre awards in New York.

Adapted by George Tabor, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is a satire of Hitler’s rise to power. It’s a cautionary tale that warns against populist politics and corruption of power. Set in 1930s Chicago, the story follows Arturo Ui and his gangsters, as they seize control of the vegetable trade. Enabled by the Cauliflower Trust and the once-honourable Dogsborough, we see how Ui’s rise to power was resistible and preventable. The play has mildly offensive language, some violence and gunshots.
