Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett, adapted by Stephen Briggs.
Directed by Steven Armstrong
Not quite the Scottish play, but MAD take Stephen Brigg's witty adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s classic fantasy novel Wyrd Sisters to the stage in Monifieth.
Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ’till the knob comes off. It’s all there – a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).
With much theatrical fun to be had, plays within plays (and jokes within jokes), it is of course, all real because it is happening before your very eyes!
