Elves may be cute and fun but nobody said they were good – a fact highlighted in Roleystone Theatre’s production of Terry Pratchett’s Lords and Ladies, adapted by Irana Brown from the popular Discworld novel.
Directed by Bradley Towton at Roleystone Hall, the satirical comedy features dark fantasy elements and parodies many story threads from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Magrat Garlick is a young-ish witch who has to overcome her own feelings of inadequacy to face an oncoming occult invasion of elves.
The task is made harder because she was raised to believe elves were happy little fellows – but a witch has to do what she must to keep the people she loves safe, even if it ruins her wedding dress.
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 Lords and Ladies plays at 7.30pm July 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13 with 2pm matinees July 6 and 13. Tickets are $20, $15 concession – book at www.roleystonetheatre.com.au
