Theatre and Clickies Galore

 

Theatre and Clickies Galore!

Gosh, it's September already? It's been five months since Nullus Anxietas 7 wrapped up, and it's still almost 2 years until Nullus Anxietas 7a, but in the meantime, there's plenty of wonderful Discworld events happening around Australia for you to enjoy!

The Play's The Thing

Over the next several months there are many Discworld plays happening all over the place. Make sure you attend a performance of one of the plays near you! If Discworld plays prove popular, it'll mean amateur theatre companies will keep performing them.

Watch Out! It's Captain Carrot!

News from The Watch – the TV series being developed by the BBC – young rising star Adam Hugill has been cast as Captain Carrot, according to Deadline. This is the first piece of casting news from this production, and we look forward to much more. With the success of Good Omens on Amazon Prime earlier this year, and the upcoming animated film based on The Amazing Maurice, plus (of course) Troll Bridge – we can be excited about seeing many more Pratchett adaptations on screen in the future.
