Carpe Jugulum

Please note:  This production includes the use of pyrotechnics (bangs and flashes, not strobe lighting)

In Ghat they believe in vampire watermelons, although folklore is silent about what they believe about vampire watermelons.  Possibly they suck back...

The de Magpyrs are the sort of vampires that would have Count Dracula spinning in his grave: modern, forward-looking and no longer afraid of holy water, garlic, religious symbols or, indeed, of anything else.  This makes them very, very dangerous. Luckily for the Discworld, the three Lancre witches are on hand - and the battle is on!

Terry Pratchett’s world famous witches are back! Following on from our successful productions of Wyrd Sisters and Maskerade, The People’s Theatre, in collaboration with Young People’s Theatre, are proud to present Carpe Jugulum (Latin: “seize the throat”) following the lives of Lancrastrians Nanny Ogg, Magret, Agnes Nitt and Granny Weatherwax as they defend the kingdom from the undead.
