Shepperton Players and Manor Players joint production as “Riverside Players” presenting an amateur performance of Terry Pratchetts’ Guards! Guards! Adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs
Following the successes of ”Allo! Allo’ and ‘Are You Being Served?’, Manor Players and Shepperton Players are joining forces again to bring you another fabulous comedy this summer. The Stage adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s “Guards! Guards!”
‘Guards! Guards! Is a fantasy story set in Pratchett’s world famous Discworld, it is full of fantastical themes – terrifying and comic in equal measure.
The security of the city of Ankh-Morpok is in the hands of its City Night Watch, an apparently incompetent and apathetic bunch of moaners. When they suddenly find themselves up against a massive fire-breathing monster, they need to up their game – and fast.
The characters may include dwarves, dragons and a, a, whatever that is….? but the humour is very human and very real.
Terry Pratchett’s stories have topped the best seller lists across the world for decades and the stage adaptations of his plays by Stephen Briggs have been wowing audiences for many years now as well.
This production is shaping up to be something special, so please don’t miss out.
Performance dates are June 28th – 30th with a matinee on the Saturday.
