The Company

“Wyrd Sisters” by Terry Pratchett adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs

7:30pm, 13th — 16th June 2018 at the Drama Studio
and 7:30pm, July 11th on Dore Village Green

“When shall we three meet again?" — "Well I can do next Tuesday"

The book cover for Wyrd Systers, featuring Witches, the dead King, a Fool, The Duke ecetera

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up 'till the knob comes off. It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

Adapted by Stephen Briggs (who assures us the cast should still be able to be in the pub by 10 o'clock) and presented by The Company, a group of players who don't so much stroll but saunter vaguely pubwards.
