‘A triumph of a debut’ – Geeks in Wales
By Terry Pratchett. Adapted by Stephen Briggs. Directed by Ellen Warren.
22nd – 25th August 2018, The Gate Arts Centre, Cardiff.
Wiliam de Worde is one of life’s Observers.
He’s always been very good at it. So much so that he’s just managed to invent Ankh-Morpork’s first newspaper, and now his observations are everyone’s observations. This has the unfortunate side effect of People suddenly Observing him.
With a scandal causing chaos in the highest echelons of society, political uncertainty abounding and a lot of funny shaped vegetables, William finds himself right in the middle of the story for the first time and unsure of which way to turn. All he knows is that he has to find the Truth.
The Truth was Peculiar Production’s first show, and raised £5,000 for Cardiff Mind.
