The L-Space Web : Plays : Short Stories : 2008

March - Adelaide


The Unseen Theatre Company in association with "Insight Presents" is bringing "Pratchett Pieces Two - The Radio Play" to The Adelaide Fringe 2008. Bite-sized Terry Pratchett comedies performed as radio plays with live sound FX. Original short stories written by Terry Pratchett. Adapted for the stage by Pamela Munt, and then for radio by Rod Lewis.

About The Stories

Our heroes tell us that in death, there is honour. We've been promised an afterlife worth fighting for. But when a fictional character meets his maker, can an author live up to the expectations of his medieval creation?

Then meet Cohen the Barbarian, who has spent his life fighting for a better future. But the Trolls under the bridge are overweight businessmen nowadays. The forests are chopped down, and there's no one left to fight. Sometimes you can be too good at your job. But can Cohen make one last stand for truth, justice and the Barbarian way?
