Hear ye, hear ye! This November, the theatre is coming to your home! Just as the pageant wagons of the 15th century trundled their way through town to regale the townsfolk with performances of Biblical stories, we’re wheeling in to your homes, with tales of old as our playbill and your screen as our stage.

Join us for an entertaining and provocative journey in to time as we perform for you dramatic readings of plays from the Medieval and Elizabethan periods, live streamed straight to your home.

Explore with us matters of faith and spirituality as we bring to life the morality play of Everyman, the hilarious and off-beat mystery play, The Second Shepherd’s Play, and the dark tragedy of Macbeth by William Shakespeare. These plays are the forebearers of what we now call faith-based theatre, and are the foundations of a centuries-old tradition that even today are carried on by the likes of Gallery 7 Theatre.

Be regaled! Be enlightened!  Enjoy a unique theatrical offering from us, live-streamed direct to your home. It’s an experience like no other.


 

Everyman

by Anonymous

Everyman, a representation of all human kind, is suddenly called to give a reckoning before God for the life he has lived. Inviting mystical characters such as Fellowship, Good Deeds and Knowledge to accompany him on his pilgrimage, Everyman soon realizes that in the end, when he stands before God, all he has left to offer is his good deeds. This is a rare reading of this 15th century masterpiece, considered by many to be the greatest morality plays of all time.

The Second Shepherd's Play

Adapted to modern English by Ian Borden

A group of shepherds attempt to rescue a missing sheep from the clutches of a rapscallion sheep-stealing couple who will go to great lengths to conceal their thievery. Little to do the Shepherds know that a holy announcement from the Heavenly hosts is forthcoming that will change their lives for ever.

Macbeth

by William Shakespeare

Macbeth, a Scottish general, is enticed by a prophesy from three witches, who predict he will become the King of Scotland. Spurred on by his ambitions and his determined wife, Macbeth murders his way to a usurped throne. Wracked by guilt and paranoia, Macbeth’s reign descends in to bloody tyranny until forces led by Thane of Fife restore peace and light in the kingdom. A tragedy first performed in the early 1600’s, the play explores the destructive nature of political ambition and misaligned allegiances.
