Hecate Theatre Co.
Not for the faint-hearted. Six myths from Ovid's Metamorphoses are retold by four girls and their Matron, in a Victorian boarding school dormitory. The night before their debutant ball, where they will transform (in the eyes of society) into women, they recount stories of transformation to each other, using only bed linen to weave their tales. Horror blends with comedy through inspired staging and a darkly twisted script. ‘Simplistically clever and slick storytelling’ ★★★★ (RemoteGoat.co.uk). ‘This play's themes make the Saw films look like Dora the Explorer’ 7/10 (Bristol Evening Post). www.hecatetheatre.co.uk. Ages 12+.
