Monstrous Regiment – By Terry Pratchett
“Shove them down the front of your trousers. People notice what’s missing more than they notice what’s there. Only one pair though, don’t get ambitious.”
31st January – 4th February 2017, Nuffield Theatre, Southampton
This January come with us on a journey to Discworld!
It started as a sudden strange fancy: Polly Perks needs to join the army to find her lost brother. Except that in Borogravia, women aren’t allowed to join the army. A haircut, a change of clothes, and an extra pair of socks later, Polly is now Private Oliver Perks, marching off to war as part of the finest army in the world, an army with a secret.
Joined by a (reformed) vampire with a coffee habit, a troll, an igor, a Lieutenant who is more of a danger to himself than the enemy, and Sergeant Jackrum the most legendary sergeant in Borogravia. With enemy forces fast approaching, Polly and her fellow recruits are suddenly in the thick of it, without any training, and the enemy is hunting them. Will the best man for the job be a woman?
Monstrous Regiment is the adaptation of the best-selling Terry Pratchett novel of the same name. A real treat for existing fans and those who are totally new to Discworld. (A flat planet supported by four elephants standing on top of a giant turtle who swims through space going no one knows where).
