Terry Pratchett’s Mort

Terry Pratchett’s Mort

Death comes to us all – but in the case of Roleystone Theatre’s production of Terry Pratchett’s Mort, he offers the title character a job.

Dying of Alzheimer’s in early 2015, Pratchett was the UK’s best-selling author of the 1990s, selling more than 85 million books worldwide in 37 languages.

In Terry Pratchett’s Mort, adapted by Stephen Briggs from the popular Discworld novel, the character of Death feels it’s time for a change and chooses an apprentice to take over the job for him.

He finds Mort at a small career fair, giving him board, lodging and free use of the company horse – but trouble begins when Mort, instead of collecting a princess’ soul, kills her would-be assassin and changes history.
