The Devil & Billy Markham
2017 Standard Bank Ovation Award Winner
Gambling with the Devil is such a bad, bad idea. Billy Markham’s been around for years: he’s been cut and bled a thousand times, and his eyes are wise and sad – hell, he ain’t afraid of them devilish dice.
“If you’re lookin’ for some action, friend, well, I’ve rolled them dice before.” What happens next is an epic tale of Faustian proportions superbly recounted by James Cairns directed by Jenine Collocott – the team behind Dirt and The Snow Goose.
