William Shakespeares Macbeth

What's On - Events Calendar for Exeter and the surrounding area of Devon

What: William Shakespeares Macbeth - 17th November 2023
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.

Run-time: 2 hours 40 mins. Interval takes place between Acts 3 and 4, for a length of time designated by the venue.
Broadly suitable for all ages. This is a key text in schools, so care has been taken to keep the show suitable for all ages. Parental guidance is advised.
Contains action scenes, scenes of witchcraft, a nuclear attack siren, scenes of blood and stage combat. Some actors do shout or move suddenly as part of the show. Some of the text does involve sexual references, eg the scene with the Porter.
There will be a free education pack available for the show, for students, via the South Devon Players website www.southdevonplayers.com, avaiulable from November 1 2023

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.
