Hecate

Hecate

★★☆☆☆ Fairly foul:

As befits a play so often performed and studied, Macbeth has been the object of many reworkings and extensions over the years. Unfortunately, for every Dunsinane there are ten less memorable efforts. The Little Shakespeare Company’s Hecate falls into the latter category.

The Mould That Changed The World

★★★★☆ Infectiously Good:
