Wyrd Sisters

We are happy to introduce West Side Theatre for our performances in November 2011!
How to get to West Side Theatre


Based on the Terry Pratchett novel of the same name, the action takes place on the fabulous Discworld® (a planet carried through space on a huge turtle) in a small country called Lancre. Three witches - the extravagant Magrat Garlick, the chirpy Nanny Ogg and their superior Granny Weatherwax - find themselves dragged into royal politics. Verence, the king, has been murdered by Duke Felmet, who has taken control of the country.

Yet the duke himself is enthralled to his over-bearing wife, the Duchess. This depressing affair might endure, but we discover that the Duke hates Lancre and the kingdom is in turn pressing the witches to find a king that would take better care of it. Moreover, Verence's baby son has escaped and fallen into the hands of the witches. The son must be protected but Witch Weatherwax doesn't want to get involved - but she may have no choice!

Wyrd Sisters, published in 1988, is Terry Pratchett's sixth novel in the hugely popular Discworld® series. Adaptations have included an animated version and a 4-part BBC Radio dramatisation. Stephen Briggs play is a new adaptation to mark Discworld's 25th Anniversary.
