Great Gale of Brixham 1866 - history drama - Brixham Theatre

Brixham Theatre - Dec 13th (evening), Dec 14th (matinee & evening) Tickets £8 (£7 concs) Brixham Theatre New Road ∕ Bolton Cross Brixham Devon TQ5 8TA About THE History On the night of January 10 - 11th 1866, a southeast gale blew up, and the storm is widely remembered in Brixham to this day. Much of the towns fishing fleet, as well as other ships sheltering in Torbay were destroyed, with a large loss of life. THE SHOW The Great Gale of Brixham 1866, brings to life a pivotal historical event in Brixham. The show dramatizes the historical night and its aftermath, as well as delving into some of the other local stories of the town that are believed to have happened within the 19th Century. The Great Gale of Brixham 1866, was carefully researched from original newspaper sources, local stories and oral history from local families, written by the South Devon Players company founder, Laura Jury, a long term resident of Brixham. While it can only provide a snapshot of the events of the night, it brings to life one of the big historical events of the town, in a two hour production. The performances at Brixham Theatre, on December 13th and 14th 2019, are performed in one of the towns buildings still linked to the storm - many surviving sailors rescued from the multiple shipwrecks were brought to the town hall (now the modern day Theatre and the Scala Hall) which acted as emergency accommodation Performed by a professional cast of locally based actors, this production stars an actor from the famous TV series Poldark, where he played one of the MPs, in the lead male role, alongside an equally talent cast of Devon-based actors.
