We were treated to a surprise visit by Sir. Terry Pratchett himself just a few hours before we took to the stage for a sold out opening night at the Teachers’ Club, Parnell Sq., Dublin last Wednesday, November 3rd.
Sir Pratchett, having recently joined staff at Trinity College as an adjunct professor of English, was visiting Dublin and noticed the amateur production was coincidentally running this week. He requested a visit early last week which was kept secret from the cast until just before opening night!
Taking the time to meet each of the cast and crew members he joked about the various actors in the past who had played the roles of the characters he had created in his multi-million selling Discworld® novel series. I think we can say that everyone was suitable amazed by this gentleman and it will be a moment that many of us in No Drama Theatre will cherish!
