The Cranbourne Amateur Dramatic Society (CADS) will be staging Men At Arms, directed by Simon Heffer, as their autumn production: "The Ankh-Morpork City Night Watch find their services are once more needed to tackle a threat to their city. A threat at least as deadly as a 60-foot dragon, but mechanical and heartless to boot. It kills without compunction. It is the first gun on the Discworld. The original Watch – Captain Vimes, Sergeant Colon, Corporal Carrot and Corporal Nobbs – are joined by some new recruits, selected to reflect the city's ethnic make-up – Lance-constables Cuddy, Detritus, and Angua. In a city, where Assassins are clowning about and Fools are dying, the Watch must keep control of themselves as much as its citizens."

This just in from The Truth director Pamela Munt...

"The truth shall make ye free 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”

presents a fresh take on...

Sir Terry Pratchett’s “The Truth”
Adapted by Stephen Briggs.
Mucked about with, for Unseen Theatre Company, by Pamela Munt

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 William 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.....

“If it’s published, it’s ink-validated”
