Wyrd Sisters

Adapted by Stephen Briggs from the book by Terry Pratchett


12th - 17th December 2016


The late Sir Terry Pratchett's 'Discworld' take on Shakespeare's Scottish Play, with added references to Hamlet, King Lear, an actor/playwright, and 'Sleeping Beauty' (that last one's not Shakespeare surely?)

These witches somehow lack the menace one has come to expect, although their spells can have dramatic effects.

A comic feast.
