ABOUT

Reality TV. So over-cooked right? Wrong. Welcome to Masterchef, Shakespeare style. Combining scenes from some of the Bard’s most-studied plays, In The Cauldron takes lashings of imagination, a sprinkle of irreverence, some carefully chopped themes and a healthy slug of Shakespeare and slow cooks for 50 minutes. The results are both surprising and delicious.
