Synopsis
Terry Pratchett's infamous city of Ankh-Morpork is under threat from a 60-foot fire-breathing dragon, summoned by a secret society of malcontented tradesmen.

Defending Ankh-Morpork against this threat is the entire, underpaid, undervalued City Night Watch - a drunken and world-weary Captain, a cowardly and overweight Sergeant, a small opportunistic Corporal of dubious parentage... and their newest recruit, Lance-Constable Carrot, who is upright, literal, law-abiding and keen. Aiding them in their fight for truth, justice and the Ankh-Morporkian way, are a small swamp dragon and the Librarian of Unseen University (who just happens to be an orang-utan)...

NODA Review

The play is an adaptation of one of Terry Pratchett’s many works describing events in the Discworld. Staging a Discworld novel becomes a challenging play of 29 scenes located in a variety of locations, a cast of 36 supported by 2 dragons and an orang-utan. On top of this the Club had to cope with the relocation of the plays' promoter and co director. The club produced a skilfully crafted piece of theatre that was hugely enjoyed by a packed audience.
