Written By: Original novel by Sir Terry Pratchett.
Adapted for the stage by Pamela Munt
Directed By: Pamela Munt
Eric has been described as “the Discworld’s only demonology hacker”, but all he really wants is three wishes. That sounds simple enough, right?
No, this is not your favourite fairytale from your childhood. Far from it. Well, maybe not that far........just as far as the Discworld where demons, wizards, hell-hounds, hostile travel accessories, and more demons, thinly disguised as public servants with a penchant for excessive amounts of stationary and memos, are real. Well...real-ish.
But to get back to Eric, the clever young man with a Faust-like spirit of insatiable scientific inquiry. It turns out that he is not quite as clever a hacker as he thinks he is. Instead of calling up a malleable, complaisant, but experienced demon to grant his wishes, his magic circle has managed to retrieve the most incompetent wizard in the universe ...Rincewind.
What follows is an hilarious race through space, time and history. Not to mention, the torture chambers of hell. (which I think I just did – oops!)
Comments about Sir Terry Pratchett, original author of the book:-
“He is screamingly funny. He is wise. He has style” – Daily Telegraph.
“To say that Terry Pratchett is popular is a bit like saying the Arctic Circle is a bit nippy” – Sunday Express.
