GENTLEMAN OF THE ROAD

 Gentleman Of The Road, is a newly written play about a historical Devon highwayman who operated in the area (and others) in the 1680s and 1690s.
It tells the story of a true life local highwayman, with plenty of action, humour, and thrills.

Shows will be performed in Brixham, as well as in Exeter and other locations as we are able to book, towards the end of the summer.
Actors, actresses, and people who want to help with costumes, effects, and Front of House all needed.

ABOUT THE SOUTH DEVON PLAYERS COMMUNITY THEATRE COMPANY
The South Devon Players are a small non-profit community theatre group based in Brixham Devon, England, founded in 2005. As such, roles are not paid, but you do get photos, and DVDs wherever possible.

We rehearse weekly at our local Royal British Legion club, and specialise in newly written plays (by our members) about local history and legends. These plays are performed locally, often in aid of charity, and occasionally outside Torbay as well, in the wider South Devon area.

We pride ourselves on being inclusive, and welcoming anyone who wants to participate in the performing arts. Members need to be aged 16 or over, other than that the only restrictions are that they are reliable, prompt for rehearsals and show set-ups, and that they can work within a team.
