Tour 2015
Our Frogs tour of 2015 is now complete. Read all about it below and on our Past Shows page.

A brand new adaptation of Aristophanes’ zany comedy about summoning dead playwrights to settle a divine score. Join the god of drama, Dionysus, on a journey to the Underworld to spark rivalry, ribbiting and an epic battle of wits. Hecate Theatre’s Frogs is an all-female take on this bonkers Greek classic. Featuring a literary smack-down between William Shakespeare and Jane Austen, and with a quirky choral soundtrack, Hecate create an eerie post-apocalyptic world in which the grotesque ‘frogs’ tell their story as an ensemble cast of five females.

“The real star of the show here is the ensemble cast who croak, sing and banter their way through a sparkling, relevant script” – Bristol Culture
“Extremely entertaining, an absolute delight to watch from start to finish” ***** – Theatre Bath

“A crafty and clever fusion of the ancient and modern worlds… energetic, fast-paced, and amusing.” **** Inter:Mission
