The Last Continent

Adapted and Directed by Pamela Munt

"Discworld is a world and a mirror of worlds. This is not a play about Australia. No, it's about somewhere entirely different which just happens to be, here and there, a worries, right?"

On the Discworld anything can happen. Or even "not happen". Sometimes its difficult to know which is which - even for the Wizards at Unseen University.

In this case, The Last Continent was "not happening". It was dying, even as it was being built, and even the Gods who were building it didn't quite know what was going on. Some thought it was to do with the space/time continuum. Others thought that there was not enough magic left in the world to glue all the pieces together. Others thought it may be something to do with the lack of rain.

The one thing that they did agree on was that it needed a hero. A hero who could eat a Pie Floater even when he was sober… Yep, its our old friend Rincewind. The inept wizard who can't even spell wizard. He's the only hero left. Still… no worries, right?, or as he would say:-

"Dead is only for once, but running away is forever"
