Camelot is Crumbling: An Arthurian Nightmare
Hypnotizing by Jacqueline Wegscheid
Rating: 5 kitties
This was amazing, I sat spellbound the entire hour. Anyone who saw The Rise of General Arthur two years ago will have a good idea of the kind of show to expect, but I thought Camelot went a step beyond that even. I think I will have to see it again. Possibly tomorrow.

William Shakespeare's Rape of Lucrece
Haunting by Jacqueline Wegscheid
Rating: 4 kitties
Shakespeare didn't pull any punches on this one and neither do the performers. The subject matter is too awful for me to say that I really liked it, but it was moving and powerful and I'm still thinking about it a day later. It should go without saying, given the title, but major trigger warning, and I would put the age range somewhat higher personally.
