Discworld plays are popping up all over Roundworld! And here's the latest one:

"The Phnom Penh Players theatre troupe is back this Friday with a stage adaptation of Wyrd Sisters, Terry Pratchett's 1988 parodic reimagining of Macbeth... Director Kevan Stuart, a massive fan of the sci-fi writer Pratchett, says Wyrd Sisters seemed fitting as a twisted story around Macbeth, which the Phnom Penh Players is preparing to stage later in the year. Describing the characters as 'fascinating', he says he especially enjoys the reinterpretation of the witches, who are presented as evil in Macbeth, whereas '[in Wyrd Sisters] the witches are portrayed as evil [by the duke and duchess] but they are not'... With a cast of 19 playing 31 characters, Stuart advises theatre-goers to take note of recurring actors who come back as minor characters with one-liners. 'Often those lines are the funniest in the entire scene, or the most important,' he says. 'It's really very funny, if you’ve got a British dry sense of humour'."

When: 24th and 25th February, 3rd and 4th March 2017
Venue: Department of Performing Arts, Street 173, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Time: 7pm all shows
Tickets: $10, available from Box Office, Showbox, Eleven One Kitchen and Tusk. "All proceeds go to OIC Cambodia, an organisation dedicated to speech therapy in Cambodia."

The Majestic Theatre in Corvallis, Oregon, USA will be staging their production of Mort next February.

"Death is always right behind us. But if he were in front of us, and this were the fantastical Discworld invented by the late Sir Terry Pratchett, Death would also be a seven-foot skeleton with a black robe and a scythe. And when Death is in front of young Mort, he also has an offer of an apprenticeship.

"In this hilarious overview of life, love, and death (not in that order), Mort finds himself living in Death's abode, but when he finally gets a chance to do the job, his mistakes cause reality to be sliced in half, with a beautiful princess somewhere between life and death and not very happy about it. Surrounded by panicked wizards, arrogant royalty, goofy drunks, and short-order chefs, Mort and Death must confront their own fears in order to restore order, and figure out who lives, and who's fired!"

When: 10th, 11th, 12th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th February 2017 (performances on the 12th and 19th are matinees)
Venue: The Majestic Theatre, 115 SW 2nd Street, Corvallis, OR 97333
