Viv Thomas enjoys a lively adaptation of Terry Pratchett book.
A group of talented youngsters have been casting a spell over sell-out audiences at Stage Two in the past few days with a lively adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Lords and Ladies.
What's not to like - good witches, evil elves, royalty, rustics, morris dancing, sword fights - all presented with lots of humour!
A Midsummer Night's Dream is referenced various times - but this story, adapted for the stage by Irana Brown, takes some of those themes and mischievously takes them in a different direction.
There were great performances all round as the cast (some portraying several characters) really got their teeth into comedic parts, with the leads particularly assured and impressive.
Mention must also be made of the clever and extremely effective set, sound and lighting effects.
The last performance tonight (Sat 16th) will be audio described.
