Pratchett is one of the world’s bestselling authors of all time having sold 85 million books worldwide in 37 languages.
This authorised adaption by Stephen Briggs was written with amateur theatre companies in mind.
It frequently parodies and takes inspiration from Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare, as well as mythology, folklore and fairy tales, the Marx Brothers and often uses them for satirical parallels with cultural, political and scientific issues from “our world”.
Discworld (for those who have been living under a troll) is a comic fantasy book series set on the Discworld, a flat planet balanced on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the back of a giant turtle.
It is strongly recommended that you familiarise yourself with the Discworld universe and at least read the Witches books.
There are no small parts in this production.
Some will play singular roles but others will, in addition to their main character, play multiple roles all as challenging.
High comic acting abilities and a reasonable level of fitness will be required for these ensemble roles.
