Everyone knows dragons don’t exist – but an ARENAarts stage production of Terry Pratchett’s popular Discworld novel Guards! Guards! at the Latvian Centre Theatre may prove otherwise.
Dying of Alzheimer’s in early 2015, Pratchett was the UK’s best-selling author of the 1990s, selling more than 85 million books worldwide in 37 languages.
Terry Pratchett’s Guards! Guards! is described as a “comedic adventure of dragons, dastardly plans, dire deeds and decidedly dramatic dramas” as a fiendish plot to take over the City of Ahnk-Morpork unfolds.
A dragon from the world of beyond is summoned to torch the city and terrorise the citizens into submission – and the only folk to stand in the way is a decimated City Watch made up of a drunk, coward, petty thief and rather earnest six-foot tall dwarf.
Terry Pratchett’s Guards! Guards! plays at 8pm October 21, 22, 28, 29, November 3, 4 and 5 with 2pm matinees October 23, 30 and November 6. Tickets are $22, $16 concession and $10 children (under 16) – book on 9399 9947, firstname.lastname@example.org or at www.trybooking.com/LUCB.
