For Fans of Fantasy, Satire and the Scottish Play

“You’ll learn there is another rule…When you break rules, break ’em good and hard."

A true king murdered by a treacherous duke and his wicked wife. The land in turmoil. Sound familiar? But this isn't Scotland. It’s Lancre on the Discworld, a world balanced on four elephants on the back of a giant turtle. Now, three very different witches must team up to restore the true heir to the throne. But first they must rescue him from life as an actor. Thoughtful satire by Britain’s foremost humorist, Terry Pratchett.

Featuring: Benjamin Brewer, Marisa Camazzola, Mark Canlas, Carol Doughty, Stephen Dove Arianna Fuke, Lyndsay Hamilton, Andra Kelly, Dean Leblanc, Garret Lee, Deborah Lobban, Carly Midgley, Michael Peever, David Ross, Gerri Sefi, William Wallace

"Lucky you. You made some wise choices. But you're wrong if you think everyone has 'em."

In South Boston, where money is tight and entertainment means a few games of bingo, Margie Walsh has lost her job. Scrambling for a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie as a doctor might be her ticket to a fresh start. But is success climbing over the class divide, or making the rent from the card you’ve been given? Margie is about to find out whether strength of character or a lucky break makes good people.

"'s not always about what I believe. It's sometimes about what I'm expected to believe."

Poor Dean. His only useful, admittedly awesome, skill is killing people from a distance. Great in Afghanistan, not so hot on the mean streets of Toronto. He’s unemployed, his father is losing his mind, and his ex-wife/new bride is pregnant. Then the politicians come calling. This is acerbically funny theatre spinning left and right wing views, asking where will you make your stand? Deadly serious, seriously funny. Not for the easily offended.
