Marlowe Players stage Pratchett adaptation

The Marlowe Players will be heading into the realms of fantasy when they present Wyrd Sisters – the stage adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s sixth Discworld novel.

Experienced actor Rick Law makes his directing debut with Wyrd Sisters for the Darley Abbey-based group: “It’s something a little out of the ordinary and unusual in terms of the things that we do – but I think our existing audience will enjoy it.

Wyrd Sisters is largely homage to William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth.

The play features a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of a murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players and a land in peril. Who stands between the kingdom and destruction? Three witches.

You can see the play at Darley Abbey Village Hall from July 25-29. For tickets go to or call 07961 607372.
