There's no Time for Dreaming on THIS Midsummer's Night
Continuing an annual 'Pratchett tradition', Brisbane Arts Theatre brings Lords and Ladies to the stage with all the quirkiness, humour and cult-inducing scripts loved by Terry Pratchett fans the world over.

Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg (the witches of Lancre) are the Discworld's only hope of rescue when elves threaten to take control with their hypnotic 'glamour'. Standing stones, Morris dancers, rude mechanicals, country lore and ancient magic all combine in this hilarious adaptation of one of TerryPratchett's finest works. Much of the storyline spoofs elements of Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream.

There will be a full supporting cast of dwarves, trolls, wizards and one orangutan (of course), plus an abundance of hey-nonny-nonny and blood all over the place. It's obvious why there's always a slot in Brisbane Arts Theatre's calendar dedicated to the superbly rich and highly imaginative world of Terry Pratchett's work.
