Subject: Theatre production of TRUCKERS


Terry's Pratchett's hugely successful book Truckers, a Smarties book award nominee in 1989, is being given its world stage premiere in 2002 in a ground-breaking co-production between three regional theatres, Harrogate Theatre, the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry and the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds.

Truckers has been adapted for the stage by Bob Eaton, Artistic Director of the Belgrade and will be directed by Rob Swain, from Harrogate Theatre. It tells the story of how the thousands of tiny nomes who live under the floorboards of a large department store, Arnold Brothers (est 1905), escape to the great Outside when the store, their whole world, is closed for demolition. They need nerve, lots of pieces of string and a large truck! It all makes for a breathtaking adventure story which all the family are sure to enjoy. The production will combine live action with film - a truly multi-media experience.

Truckers will be touring to the following theatres in 2002:
