I just saw Lismore Theatre Group’s stage adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s book ‘Witches Abroad’. It’s no surprise Sir Terry approved of and co-operated with this adaptation. It’s pantomime; the perfect form for his work and an excellent form for the amateur groups it’s written for. Huge kudos to the Lismore Theatre Group for pulling it off a treat. I really enjoyed it.
