Why, it’s the theatre dahling!

News broke yesterday that Terry Pratchett’s Nation is to be transformed into a National Theatre production by Mark Ravenhill. Bookwitch reckons that it will be in the Olivier and will appear some time in November. So far that’s all the details I’ve read.

There have been plenty of decent other stage adaptations in the press this month - including The Snowman, Michael Morpurgo’s Why the Whales Came and Martin Murphy’s version of Peter Pan. And if that has whet your appetite - why not visit the Ark in Dublin to see Marina Carr’s The Giant Blue Hand - tickets are only €10!!

(See what I did there? Reeled ye in slowly, got you interested with news about the Terry Pratchett play and before you knew what had happened? I had you booking tickets for the Ark. Clever, huh?)
