A co-production with Morpheus Theatre
Greg is a man of middle age, a restless empty-nester tired of his job in finance and looking for meaning in his life.
Sylvia is an exuberant lab/poodle mix, astray and looking for a new home.
When they meet at the park it is love at first sight…
But Greg’s wife Kate is looking forward to some independence now that the couple no longer has children to care for,
and is less than thrilled by the clever and coquettish canine who jumps, slobbers, sits on her couch,
and takes Greg’s attention away from his marriage.
A touching and hilarious love story!

Welcome to “Ankh-Morpork”, the (second) greatest city in all of Discworld. As cities go, it is on the far
side of corrupt and polluted and is subject to outbreaks of comedic violence and silly brou-ha-ha’s on a
fairly regular basis… but things are about to take a sinister turn. A secret organization, The Unique and
Supreme Lodge of the Elucidated Brethren of the Ebon Night, have concocted a most ingenious plan –
by utilizing a stolen magical book, they plan to summon a fearsome Dragon to terrorize the city and
replace the leadership of Ankh-Morpork with their own puppet king.
Defending the city against this monster threat is the underpaid, undervalued City Night Watch – the
drunken and world-weary Captain Vimes, the cowardly Sergeant Colon, the small opportunistic Corporal
Nobby of … unknown origins…and their newest recruit, Lance-Constable Carrot, whom is a dwarf (by
adoption only). They may be called the Palace Guard, the City Guard, or the Patrol. Whatever the name,
their purpose in any work of heroic fantasy is the same: it is, around about Chapter Three, or ten
minutes into the play, to rush into the room, attack the hero one at a time … and be slaughtered.
No-one ever asks them if they wanted to.
