Men At Arms
Adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs
Scarcely a year on from the events of Guards! Guards!, the Ankh-Morpork City Night Watch find their services are once more needed to tackle a threat to their city. A threat at least as deadly as a 60-foot dragon, but mechanical and heartless to boot. It kills without compunction. It is the first gun on the Discworld.
The original Watch - Captain Vimes, Sergeant Colon, Corporal Carrot and Corporal Nobbs - are joined by some new recruits, selected to reflect the city's ethnic make-up - Lance-constables Cuddy (a dwarf), Detritus (a troll) and Angua (a w..., well, best to find out for yourself).
Stephen Briggs has been invloved in amateur dramatics for over 25 years and he assures us that the play can be staged without needing the budget of Industrial Light and Magic. Not only that, but the cast should still be able to be in the pub well before closing time.
Oh, and a word of advice omitted from the play text:
