Guards Guards  Main House

by Terry Pratchet and adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs

14-24 February (Audio described 22 and matinee 24)

The Crescent Theatre Company

Terry Pratchet's infamous city of Ankh-Morporkh is under threat from a 60 foot tall fire breathing dragon, summoned by a society of mal-contented tradesmen.

Defending Ankh-Morporkh  against this threat is the entire underpaid, undervalued City Night Watch - all four of them!  There's Vimes, the world-weary drunken Captain; Colon, a cowardly overweight Sergeant; Corporal Nobby of dubious parentage and the newest recruit, Lance Corporal Carrot who is upright, law-abiding, keen and a dwarf. (by adoption).

Aided by a small swamp dragon and the Librarian of Unseen University (who just happens to be an orang-utan) this little band must fight for truth, justice and the Ankh-Morporkian way.

This production of Terry Pratchet's work follows the Crescent's previous successes with Wyrd Sisters, Mort and, most recently, Maskerade.
