The Theatre Students' Association of Regina University are presenting their production of Mort this week!

"Mort is a fun and fantastic adaption of Terry Pratchett’s fourth Discworld novel. Directed by Theatre Department alumni Landon Walliser, this hilarious comic fantasy is based on the first of the Death stories in the Discworld canon. Death comes to us all, and when he came to Mort he offered him a job. After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted. However, he soon found that his humanity did not mix easily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice. Terry Pratchett's hilarious fourth Discworld story establishes once and for all that Death really is a laughing matter."

When: 28th–31st March 2017
Venue: Shu-Box Theatre, Riddell Centre, University of Regina, 3737 Wascana Parkway, Regina, Saskatchewan S4S 0A2

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!"

After last year's triumph, Chelmsford Theatre Workshop are back with another Discworld production! Director Lynne Foster says, "I have loved to read Terry Pratchett since his first books were published – and over 20 years ago , Wyrd Sisters was one of the first plays I appeared in... After a break of a few years CTW once again put on a Terry Pratchett last year – a production of Wyrd Sisters – significantly just after Terry passed away. So – when I was thinking what to submit for 2015/6 season, I re-read Mort – and loved it – it has everything, magic, feisty young protagonists, and best of all – DEATH! I think Pratchett's plays are quite difficult to translate to the theatre, but in my opinion, Mort is the most successful. I spoke to the team who put on Wyrd Sisters who agreed to work with me on this – and the rest – as they say – is history. The whole team is looking forward to producing a fast paced, entertaining wonderful production in March."

"In the first of a series of Discworld novels for young adults, we meet the young witch-to-be Tiffany Aching – a girl who reads the dictionary for fun – because no-one ever told her not to. With a trusty frying pan as her weapon, her grandmother's magic book (well actually its called 'Diseases of the Sheep') and the Wee Free Men by her side, Tiffany ventures into the realm of faerie land to rescue her very sticky, and not particularly likeable, baby brother.
