Archives - Wyrd Sisters

by Terry Pratchett
Adapted by Stephen Briggs

Directed by Eric Chorley and Zoë Watkins

Friday 1st – Saturday 9th January 1999 in the Auditorium

Granny Weatherwax is intolerant, self-opinionated and powerful. Her best friend, Nanny Ogg, is down to earth and vulgar, and their young apprentice, Magrat Garlick, is naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies. Together they are three formidable witches, who, when not hanging about on blasted heaths, are out avenging murdered Kings, saving the kingdom from destruction and generally putting the world to rights.

Sound familiar? It should do, Pratchett takes a healthy dose of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, adds a little Hamlet, mixes it up with his now globally famous Discworld characters and logic, and gives us a fantastically funny and entertaining play for all the family.
