Cats are like witches. They don’t fight to kill, but to win. There is a difference. There’s no point in killing an opponent. That way, they won’t know they’ve lost, and to be a real winner you have to have an opponent who is beaten and knows it. There’s no triumph over a corpse, but a beaten opponent, who will remain beaten every day of the remainder of their sad and wretched life, is something to treasure.

I hope hatboy doesn’t mind this- I loved his Tim Burton Squirtle so much I got it as a tattoo! Still a bit fresh and bleeding.

UK Premier confirmed!

It took a little nudge but I’ve finally had permission from Terry Pratchett’s agent to go ahead!

Meaning that in April 2015 Cardiff will host the UK Premier of a brand new Discworld production!

Unfortunately we won’t be telling you what it is just yet, as we have Wyrd Sisters coming up in November but expect the announcement in the next few months.

I don’t usually put personal things on here but I’m having a go at selling on etsy! If I can sell 10 sets of 4 of these finger puppets I made then I can buy a new table for my tortoises :) 

Have called my shop GeekTerrifique- I had to think fast ok?!

A UK premier!

I can’t actually give full details (infuriating, I know) but we are days away from hopefully securing the UK premier of a new Pratchett adaptation! The venue is booked, the script is in our hands and all we have to do is agree a few changes with the writer and it’s ours!

This is such a huge deal for us as we were only ever going to put on one production and to see my company grow like this has been amazing.

We’re currently well underway on our production of Wyrd Sisters but I’m finding it really difficult to not start planning the next one! It’s another favourite of mine too so it’s especially exciting. I really hope that fans will travel to see it as I’d love them to see our versions which are rather different to all the over the top panto style versions I’ve seen of Pratchett adaptations in the past. I’ll keep you updated!
