Roy Brown: Bard of Margate

    by Derek Webb

Comedy Play Script: 'Roy Brown: Bard Of Margate' by Derek Webb


Roy’s back with his own inimitable take on Shakespeare. Roy decides to help out his mate Kev by producing Macbeth for Kev’s newly launched pub theatre: at the Shakespeare’s Head in Margate.

But this is no ordinary Macbeth.  According to Roy, his version is not only better than the original, but he’s cut out ‘all the boring stuff’ and made it a lot sharper and much, much shorter, and with a lot more jokes.

Characteristically, he describes his latest play in one word: Awesome.
