All the Discworld's a Stage

Three Terry Pratchett Plays
A collection of stories by

Feet of Clay

Someone is killing Lord Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork. No one knows who, no one knows why and, worst of all, no one knows how

- he just gets weaker and weaker. But it's not just Vetinari - across the city, people are being murdered, but there's no trace of anything

alive having been at the crime scene. Commander Vimes, Head of the City Watch, is a man who hates 'clues'. He and his team must question

everyone - the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker. In a city teeming with vampires, werewolves, dwarfs with attitude and golems,

Vimes must solve the crimes and save the Patrician.

The Rince Cycle

As a punishment, failed wizard Rincewind is given the task of guiding and safeguarding the Disc's first tourist, Twoflower (with his magical

luggage on legs). As they travel the city and beyond, they meet the world's oldest hero, Cohen the Barbarian. With him, and with Bethan

(a qualified sacrificial victim), they encounter druids, trolls, adventurers, a hairdresser and a power-crazed wizard. Oh, and Death. But not

fatally. Did we mention that Rincewind also has to save the world from destruction by a huge red star that will collide with the Discworld at

Hogswatch? The Rince Cycle is mostly based on The Light Fantastic, with bits of The Colour of Magic and Sourcery added for good measure.

Unseen Academicals

'Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Ankh-Morpork, where we lay our scene... '

Football divides the city. Each area has its own team - and rivalry means supporters never mix. Until a Dimwell fan falls for a Dolly Sisters girl.

And now an ancient bequest means the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic. Luckily they're coached by the

mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too). As the match approaches, four lives

are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football.
