Called "the Charles Dickens of our time," author Terry Pratchett has long enchanted readers with his funny and fantastic novels, especially those included in his 40-volume Discworld series. Now theater-goers will get to experience Pratchett's wild and witty imagination live on stage with Monstrous Regiment, a new adaptation of his 2003 novel. Borogravia is once more at war. When Polly Perks' brother goes missing in action, she cuts off her hair and enlists, hoping to find him. Passing successfully as a young man, she soon discovers that she's not alone in protecting a secret and that nothing in the improbable conflict is as it seems. Kevin Theis directs this wickedly clever look at the absurdities of war and ambiguities of identity, in a world premiere adaptation by Chris Hainsworth. Learn More
