The L-Space Web : Plays : Unseen Academicals : 2010

April - Adelaide

The Unseen Theatre Company
The Australian Premiere
Sir Terry Pratchett's "Unseen Academicals".

Original adaptation by Stephen Briggs.
Re-worked and Directed for Unseen Theatre Company by Pamela Munt.

We all know that man cannot survive on bread alone - unless of course he is Lord Havelock Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork. Vetinari usually dines on bread and water followed by the oil that makes the city of Ankh-Morpork run smoothly.

In this year of the Pensive Hare, people were getting bored, and the oil was wearing a bit thin. It was threatening to spread out of control via the vicious street game of foot-the-ball that the people were turning to for their amusement. A game that they believed was more exciting than beating other people over the head with big weapons.

Football - like diplomacy and marriage. Short periods of fighting followed by long periods of negotiaton.

"We play and are played and the best we can hope for is to do it with style."

The important thing about football - is that it is not just about football. Here we go! Here we go! Here we go!
