About The Deptford Players
With the Off-Broadway world premiere of Castro's Beard in September, 2001, the Deptford Players finished our second year of full production. Looking back at the last two years, a pattern emerges that provides some insight into who the Deptford Players are and what we do.
We've produced five full-length plays, two of them Off-Broadway and three Off-Off. We've given readings to fourteen new plays and staged two of them. We received an OOBR Award from the Off-Off-Broadway Review, acknowledging our production of R.C. Sherriff's Journey's End. And, we were presented a Local Hero Award from the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (ART/NY) for service to the Off-Broadway community.
Each of our plays was presented uncut and set in the time and place the playwright set the action - for example, our production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar was set in Rome and our Journey's End in the trenches of World War I.
The Deptford Players are committed to producing high-quality classical theatre, trusting the texts enough to present them intact and feeling no need to "modernize" them or force an agenda on the script.
That presents a pretty clear idea of what the Deptford Players is all about; classical theatre and new plays with classical themes, ideas and influences.
