ABOUT THE PLAY:
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?”
PLEASE NOTE COVID 19 CONDITIONS:
• All auditionees will be required to wear a mask.
• Hopefully we can abandon these by the time we get to rehearsals, but if not be prepared to wear them.
• We are all subject to the conditions and advice of the Health Department which changes all the time.
We have no choice about these matters so it is just a case of “wait and see”.
• It may even be that if the worst comes to the worst that performances will not be able to go ahead, so
you will need to be eager enough to enjoy the rehearsal process itself and treat performances as a “bonus”.
