“…You neglect the duty, you make ripples in reality that will take a century to heal… All in all, boy, not a good start to your first job.”

Terry Pratchett’s beloved novel tells how Death comes to us all… and when he came to Mort, he came with a job offer. Stephen Briggs’ stage adaptation brings Pratchett’s Discworld to vibrant, hilarious and often twisted life, complete with wizards, witches, threatened princesses, fair maidens, scheming courtiers, and a pale horse named Binky.

TERRY PRATCHETT’S MORT is the third show of the 2011-12 Season: Don’t Fear the Reaper.

“…Cheers to Basel Daoud who delivers Death with such deadpan (excuse the pun) humoR…”

“…more praise to Dave Heppenstall as his Mort really is endearing, dorky, lovable and you can’t help but feel for him throughout his disastrous ordeal.”

“The acting is superb.”

“All in all, Terry Pratchett’s Mort is a delight…
Worth a watch while you’re exploring Fringe.”
