WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO & JULIET, ACROSS SOUTH DEVON, UK, NEXT MONTH.
Written by William Shakespeare, and directed by Miss Laura J, the writer and director of our recent smash hit Les Miserables The Memoirs of Jean Valjean, this is a full-length, original language adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, set in 1860s Brixham, in a conflict between two families, the Capulets of Higher Brixham (Cowtown) and the Montagues of Lower Brixham (Fishtown). Performed by all-local actors, with an award-winning Torbay theatre company, this promises to be a thrilling production, bringing to life a classic of British theatre- set in the local area.

The South Devon Players theatre company are an award winning, family-friendly, completely non-profit, community-based theatre company, from ithe beautiful fishing port of Brixham; Devon (in South West England)
We perform theatre shows in Brixham, around Torbay, and South Devon, based on historical events, classical stories and mythology, with a strong ethos of often bringing to life the historical heritage of the Southwest in many of our productions.
We were founded in late 2005 by two Brixham performers, 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 base, an appearance on a national BBC 1 TV programme, and sponsorship from London for our recent non-musical adaptation of Les Miserables. We also act as a showcase for members seeking to increase their performance portfolios, facilitate access to other castings in the area (over the years we have been directly contacted for actors and models, from companies including, but not limited to, the BBC, Sky, Disney and Smithsonian)
