MacBeth gets virtual airing thanks to South Devon Players

Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Macbeth will be brought to life in a lockdown production, by a theatre company based in Brixham.

South Devon Players will be broadcasting on Sunday (June 28) as a ticketed event online.

The performance will remain online for a couple of days after to ensure that people around the world can access the performance regardless of timezone.

The pandemic caused postponement and cancellation of live shows for several months, for every theatre in the country.

The South Devon Players decided to create online performances, in which the actors come together to perform online from the safety of their own homes.

The second of these online performances, is a full length, costumed production of William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, Macbeth.

Laura Jury, director of many of the Player’s shows, and founder of the theatre company, is leading the new project.
