Three witches gather on a lonely heath. A king has been cruelly murdered, a wicked duke and duchess have seized the throne. Gone are the child heir and the crown.
Chaos rules supreme in the kingdom of Lancre, and the local witches – powerful Granny Weatherwax, matriarch Nanny Ogg, and youngster Magrat Garlick – should know better than to interfere. After all, meddling in politics is always more complicated than certain playwrights would have you believe…
With Wyrd Sisters, the ECB Theatre Ensemble is delighted to bring Frankfurt the divinely twisted Discworld®, from Sir Terry Pratchett’s phenomenally successful series of novels. Calling Pratchett “a satirist of enormous talent”, The Times of London said he “uses his other world to hold up a distorting mirror to our own”. This tale of a triumvirate of spellcasters and their role in royal intrigue slathers humour and magic on an homage to theatre itself and serves as a reminder of the powerful impact of words.
Come join us in an alternate dimension not so different from our own – but with witches! – for an uproarious adventure boasting plotters, plot twisters, and myriad environs that include ghosts, demons, concerned forests, jesters, tortures, thespians, peasants, tax evasion, otherworldly light and sound effects, general rejoicing and “divers alarums”.
