Tewkesbury Arts and Drama Society (TADS) have always aimed high with their productions. Now they go further than ever before, with Terry Pratchett’s® Wyrd Sisters, adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs.
Wyrd Sisters, as Pratchett fans will know, is set on Discworld®, a flat planet carried on the backs of four elephants who stand on a giant star turtle. Apart from that, though – and quite a lot of magic – everything is normal. The people are just like us: a king is murdered, a lost prince returns to claim his throne, a boy and girl fall in love.
Wyrd Sisters is TADS’ first Pratchett production, and they’re making the most of it. Led by experienced director Brenda Read-Brown, an extraordinary cast leads you through a plot that owes a lot to Shakespeare and gives back better comedy. Backstage, the crew will be laying on flashes and earthquakes, a smoking cauldron and a magic candle. A soundscape (a first for TADS) will give the whole thing a filmic and other-worldly quality – very appropriate for Discworld®!
Pratchett aficionados will love this production, of course – but so will everyone else.
