Wyrd Sisters  
So, a few months ago while I was poking around Kickstarter, I found a proposal for a production of Terry Pratchet's Wyrd Sisters, put it in my phone's calendar, and stuck it in the back of my mind. A couple months after that, one of my coworkers gave me a flier for a production at the Side Project Theatre Company of a rather familiar play. So last night, softlykarou and I went to see it.

softlykarou hasn't read any of the Discworld books, despite me trying for literally years to get her to do so, so she went in without knowing anything other than what I had told her and what I mentioned before the play, which was, "I think it's a combo of Hamlet and Macbeth, but I haven't read it in eight years, so I don't know." Despite that, it was easy to follow, and she loved it.

I did too. All of the actresses (it was an all-female production) were good, but whoever was playing Granny Weatherwax was absolutely perfect, getting all the proper poses and facial expressions right. Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick were quite good, too, and the actress playing the Duke managed to get his increasing insanity down--I particularly liked the escalating series of items she scrubbed her hands with to "get the blood out."

I'd say you should go see it, but I'm pretty sure the last day is tomorrow, and when I checked there were only a few tickets left. The theatre itself was not that much larger than our apartment, and there were maybe 35 seats total.

Also, I should reread the Discworld books...
