She was one of four who in 2005/2006 formed The Devon Players to produce local historic plays.

They produced ‘A Tale of John Prince’, which is a saucy tale about a ‘Gentleman of the Road’.

The Trial of Anne Bonny and Mary Reed, who were lady pirates based on the Barbary Pirates who captured English people for slavery in the east. It was shown at Brixham’s Pirate Festival.

The Great Gale of January 1866 when a south east gale wrecked many of Brixham’s fishing fleet and cost many lives. The fishermen’s wives made a fire beacon, of broken furniture, on the breakwater to guide their men folk home.

Medieval Christmas, staged at Exeter Cathedral, when King Edward I was murdered.

The Ballard of Resurrection of Bob Elliot the smuggler.

Les Miserable ‘The Memoirs of Jean Valjean’.

Romeo and Juliet staged in 19th Century Brixham between Cow town and Fish town.

Survivors of the Titanic who faced the Board of Trade in Plymouth.

The Players wish to build local acting skills based on, well researched, challenging projects for theatre and film.

We enjoyed listing to Laura and her impressive list of productions. We wished her luck for the future.
