Terry Pratchett’s sixth Discworld® novel Wyrd Sisters will be brought to life by Chapel-en-le-Frith Players when they perform an adaptation of the original tale by Stephen Briggs.
Pratchett takes themes from Shakespeare’s Macbeth as part of the inspiration for the story.
It’s all there - a wicked Duke (Stephen Kettle), and Duchess (Angela Buttrill), a Fool (Andrew Hearfield-Hodgeson), the ghost of the murdered King (Ian Leach), dim soldiers, strolling players (Chris Mason, Rob Fotherby, Andrew Gregory), and a land in peril.
And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction?
Three witches Granny Weatherwax (Ros Ellis), Nanny Ogg (Jean Mowl) and Magrat Garlick (Rebecca Perkins).
Filling in the gaps are Sinead Hammond, Becca Ryan, Terry Owen, Dan Mason, David Owens, Kimberley Blessing and Jill Gubbins, playing various actors, guards, peasants and even a demon.
The play, directed by Sheila Rowley and Carl Rowley, will be performed at Chapel Playhouse, on Eccles Road, Chapel-en-le-Frith on Friday October 5, Saturday October 6, Friday October 12 and Saturday October 13, at 7.45pm. Doors open at 7.15pm.
Tickets, priced £7.50 (£5 concessions) are available from Halls Mica and The Royal Oak.
