Unseen Theatre Company presents a fresh take on:



"The truth shall make ye fret"

Particularly if your deadline is urgent because, as everyone knows,

“A lie can run around the world before the truth has got it’s boots on”

There’s been a murder. Allegedly. But William de Worde, accidental editor of the Discworld's first newspaper, has got an inside line on the hot story. The facts say that Ankh-Morpork’s ruler, Lord Vetinari is guilty. But as Willam soon learns, facts don’t always tell the whole story. There’s that pesky little thing called The Truth, that just keeps trying to get out. Luckily William has an informant. He can’t be a talking dog because dogs can’t talk. He’s known only as...Deep Bone.

Through all of his investigations, William must cope with the daily perils of a journalist's life -- people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, some more people who want him dead in a different way and, worst of all, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped vegetables.

Then there are the dark forces high up in Ankh-Morpork’s society who are plotting to overthrow Lord Vetinari and who have employed two Tarantino-esque thugs, Mr. Tulip and Mr. Pin for the purpose. They mean business.

William just wants to get at THE TRUTH. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get at William. And it's only the third edition...BUT.....
