Spectral Theatre Society boldly declare in their program that they make "theatre for people that hate theatre. " Hmmm... I have not seen any of their previous productions so I sought further clarification in the program small print. It said "To breathe new life into the fetid rotting corpse of live theatre by thrilling and chilling audiences with fantastic stories delivered in unpredictable and innovative ways." Well, okay. I thought would perhaps ignore the comment on the state of live theatre - and ask if there was a single phrase that could encapsulate Spectral's niche. I got it - "theatre of the macabre."
