Wyrd Sisters

Event Details

Waiheke Theatre Company’s latest production Wyrd Sisters is a lively tale that takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ‘till the knob comes off! Suitable for families with children aged 7 years plus and adults.

Wyrd Sisters features three witches; the self-opinionated doyenne of witches, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg matriarch of a large tribe of Oggs, and the junior witch, Magrat Garlick who firmly believes in occult jewellery, covens and bubbling cauldrons, much to the annoyance of Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg.

Adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs, in this tale there is a wicked Duke and Duchess , a ghost of a murdered King wandering through the castle, dim soldiers, strolling players, and a land in peril. Even Death himself puts in a languid appearance. Three witches stand between the kingdom and destruction.

Terry Pratchett was an English humorist and satirist, his books were translated into 37 languages. In the 1990’s he was the UK’s no.1 top selling author until JK Rowling came along with Harry Potter. Pratchett fans, of which there are many and Shakespeare buffs will love this, and, if neither, you’ll still want to see a great fun show with comedy, romance, murder, magic, mayhem and madness.
