“Terry Pratchett’s infamous city of Ankh-Morpork is under threat fro a 60-foot fire-breathing dragon, summoned by a secret society of malcontented tradesman.

Defending Ankh-Morpork against this threat is the entire, underpaid, under-valued City Night Watch – a drunken and world-weary Corporal of dubious parentage…and their newest recruit, Lance-Constable Carrot, who is upright, literal, law-abiding and keen. Aiding them in their fight for truth, justice and the Ankh-Morporkian way are a small swamp dragon and the Librarian of Unseen University (who just happens to be an orangutan)

Stephen Briggs has been involved in amateur dramatics for over 25 years and he assures us that the play can be staged without needing the budget of Industrial Light Magic. Not only that, but the cast should still be able to be in the pub well before closing time.

Oh, and a word of advice omitted from the play Text:

Learn the Words

Havelock, Lord Vetinari”
