Progress Theatre: Terry Pratchett's 'Wyrd Sisters' adapted by Stephen Briggs
Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up until the knob comes off. It's all there – a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players and a land in peril.
It is directed by Christine Moran and the many people who loved her production of Pratchett's Maskerade will be delighted to see the return of those memorable characters, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, in this tale of witches and royalty, loosely based on Macbeth. Very loosely and with a nod to Hamlet.
A hugely entertaining play and a fantastic introduction to Terry Pratchett's Discworld as well as a delight for existing fans. Suitable for ages 8-108.
