Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett

Adapted for the  stage by Stephen Briggs

Production Dates:  23-24 March 2019

Venue:  The Roses Theatre

Wyrd Sisters is set in Discworld. There’s a lot of magic in Discworld, but also people just like us, who fall in love and babysit and go to the theatre; who pay (or don’t pay) their taxes; who conjure up demons.

It all starts when King Verence is murdered. A loyal soldier rescues his baby son, the prince, and takes him to find refuge…

This production aimed to capture the flavour of Pratchett’s novel, using a soundscape and lighting effects to set the many different scenes. It achieved the highest ticket sales for any TADS’ production.
