Drama enters author’s Wyrd world

AN ADAPTION of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novel Wyrd Sisters will be performed by the Under The Tower Drama group in Earls Barton this week.

The group will perform the show, which has been adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Parish Church Hall.

Tricia Nichols from the group said: “Our latest production veers away from the normal box set of cosy suburbia land and takes us to the fanciful world of Sir Terry Pratchett and his famous Discworld series of books. Wyrd Sisters was taken from one of those books and adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs.

“It features three witches, the Wyrd Sisters of the title and if you think Macbeth in comical form with a touch of Blackadder, you will have some idea of this play.”

Tickets are £7.50 and are available from Jeyes The Chemist, The Square, Earls Barton, and Lynda’s Hair Fashions, High Street, Earls Barton.
