Production Notes

'Through the fathomless deeps of space swims the star turtle Great A'Tuin, bearing on its back the four giant elephants who carry on their shoulders the mass of the Discworld.'

Terry Pratchett is one of the most popular authors writing today, and is known for his creation of the Discworld. The Discworld is not totally unlike our own, except that it is a flat disc, carried on the backs of four elephants astride a giant turtle floating through space. It is peopled by, among others, wizards, dwarves, soldiers, thieves, beggars, vampires and witches. Terry Pratchett's Discworld has always been a favourite for Castaway Community Theatre, who have performed both Wyrd Sisters and Witches Abroad. [Also Lords and Ladies! -- Ed.] Castaway performed Wyrd Sisters in 1997 as a touring production,and I felt it would be a challenge to revive it for Castaway's return to the main stage. We hope you enjoy the show!
