Just as Summer time is flourishing on the earth, FOUR OF SWORDS desires to lead you into the underworld of BEER QUARRY CAVES for their own unique and blood-curdling version of The Scottish!

This subterranean production is a reprisal of FOUR OF SWORDS’ hit 2014/16 show, and presents the Witches as Viking priestesses and goddesses of Destiny who guide the audience through the labyrinthine caverns of Macbeth’s homicidal ambition. The show features Shamanic techniques, haunting live music, gruesome film projections, Icelandic chanting, a splash or two of gore and even some Highland sword-dancing.

The company deserve huge applause – there were strong performances all round with too many stand-out moments to describe.
Anna Marks, Remotegoat

The connected caves – complete with bats – echo with a constant drip-drip-drip, perfectly conjuring the chill dankness of a medieval Scottish castle.
Belinda Dillon, Exeunt Magazine

As with previous FOUR OF SWORDS productions, audiences will be standing and walking for the duration of the 1 hour 15 min show. Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car! Please be advised that this show is too creepy for under 11s.

Dates: 18th-22nd July 2018  Times: 6.45pm & 8.45pm  Price: £15
Location: Beer Quarry Caves, Quarry Lane, Beer, Seaton, Devon EX12 3AT

  1. Fab theatre last night in Exmouth, Devon, at Rolle College. Similar energy to the awesome RED DOG Theatre Company​. And also to the RSC’s anglo-indian ‘Midsummers Night Dream’ some years ago.
    ‘Jason and the Argonauts’ is set in disused college building, just like they did with ‘Gawain and the Green Knight’ last yea at Poltimore. Good acting, processing room to room, inside and outside: one of the best theatre groups I know

  2. Wow! what a tense production in such a fitting venue.
    Four of Swords created an atmosphere of suspense that made the heart beat faster in anticipation of the next “fright”. A great performance.

  3. Production of Macbeth absolutely fantastic, location genius. I was spellbound as we moved from cave to cave. Timing superb, delivery delicious, I had to remind myself to breath. I have raved to everyone that will listen to me. Only wish it were not sold out so I could watch again and again and…..

  4. lucky to catch Jason and the Argonauts on Thus at the Tropicana. Have to see what happens to Medea now, brilliant venue for a brilliant show. You made the most of the promenading making us all feel really close up to the fighting and anguish. Crikey! poor old Medea. Jason had all the lines (‘Your making this up!’ and ‘Golly!’ – after a pretty mental fight scene) but the soul of the show was in Medea. Just hope it doesn’t go too badly for her in the future……….(how much worse can it get!) You were all fantastic, thanks for a brilliant, varied, funny, emotional, wacky and dramatic show. All the best!

  5. From Kevin Cahill
    Not a play I normally take to but this was quite off the planet. The acting was of West End quality as was the production. The lighting of the caves for the event was simply magical, even for adults. It was an experience rather than a mere play. I think it will go into the book of special memories for every one who saw and heard it. For all the digital gizmos now available for cinema and theater this play and this production show that there is no digital substitute for the real thing, face to face. Congratulations to all the cast for a truly memorable evening.

  6. Amazing performance of Media in Beer caves. A genius stage set. Dramatic, atmospheric and supremely accomplished performances. The choral chanting was perfect for the caves and utterly enthralling. Such a great experience from start to finish – loved it.
    Outstanding in every way.
