Wyrd Sisters Written by Terry Prachett, Directed by Gary Andrews
Following on from the success of ‘Mort’ in the Studio back in 2019, this is the first Terry Pratchett play to be staged in the Main House: Three witches have gathered on a lonely heath. A king has been cruelly murdered, his throne usurped by his ambitious cousin. An infant heir and the crown of the kingdom, both missing . . .Witches don’t have these kind of dynastic problems themselves – in fact, they don’t have leaders.
Granny Weatherwax was the most highly-regarded of the leaders the witches don’t have. But even she found that meddling in royal politics was a lot more complicated than certain playwrights would have you believe . . Funny and profound in equal measures – this is definitely not to be missed.
