Terry Pratchett and Us
The STC were the first people, anywhere in the world, to dramatise the work of Terry Pratchett. That was Wyrd Sisters, in 1991. It was written by STC member Stephen Briggs. He went on to write another 22 plays, all of which have been published. Two were written especially for Oxford University Press; the other twenty were staged by the STC - each time playing to packed houses. These plays have now been staged by drama clubs, colleges and schools all over the world – in over twenty countries, including Finland, the USA, Zimbabwe, Germany and the Antarctic.There are photos from several of our Discworld productions in our Gallery. A couple of shots from older shows are below.
Stephen also went on to become a close friend of Terry's; they collaborated on a series of Discworld publishing projects, including The Discworld Companion and The Wit & Wisdom of Discworld..
