Monstrous Regiment

Monstrous Regiment, Feb. 16-24

“This was not a fairy-tale castle and there was no such thing as a fairy-tale ending, but sometimes you could threaten to kick the handsome prince in the ham-and-eggs.”


Borogravia is at war. Again. Based on 31st novel the (Sir) Terry Pratchett’s wildly popular Discworld series, Monstrous Regiment is a wickedly funny look at the absurdities of war and ambiguities of identity. When Polly Perks’ brother goes missing in action, she cuts off her hair, stuffs a sock down her breeches and enlists, hoping to find him. Finding she passes surprisingly successfully as a young man, Polly soon discovers that she’s not alone in protecting a secret and that nothing in the improbable war is as it appears.By Terry Pratchett adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs.

Rated PG13
