Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ’till the knob comes off.  It’s all there – a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril.  And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction?  Three witches.  Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

This show has very kindly been sponsored by StageGear, an event services company supplying a wide range of technical equipment and services on a ‘dry hire’ or ‘installed’ basis to the entertainment, corporate and wedding industries.  Based in Cowes as well as in Hampshire, they  have over twenty years’ experience in the professional audio and lighting industry.
