Original adaptation by Stephen Briggs

Reworked for Unseen Theatre Company by Pamela Munt

Directed by Pamela Munt and David Dyte

Witches are not, by their nature, gregarious (well except perhaps for Nanny Ogg).  They certainly don’t have leaders.  Granny Weatherwax was the most highly-regarded of the leaders they didn’t have, but even she is about to find that meddling in royal politics is a lot more difficult than certain playwrights would have you believe…

Blasted heaths; three old crones (well two old crones and a young one in training);  bloody murder with spots that refuse to be erased; usurping Kings; vanishing heirs to thrones; political manoeuvrings; all-knowing Fools; plays within plays; truth within lies etc. etc.

No – its not Shakespeare – it’s the Discworld, but given that this world holds a distorted mirror to our own, the question is:-

“Is the Bard turning in his grave or giggling with delight?”
