"Mort was determined to discover the underlying logic behind the universe. Which was going to be hard, because there wasn't one."
Beginning on March 28, 2017 the Theatre Student’s Association proudly presents 'Terry Pratchett’s Mort' adapted by Stephen Briggs at the Shu-Box Theatre, Riddell Centre. The production runs from March 28-31 at 7:30 p.m. nightly.
Mort is a fun and fantastic adaption of Terry Pratchett’s fourth Discworld® novel. Directed by Theatre Department alumni Landon Walliser, this hilarious comic fantasy is based on the first of the Death stories in the Discworld® canon. Death comes to us all, and when he came to Mort he offered him a job. After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted. However, he soon found that his humanity did not mix easily with the responsibilities of being Death's apprentice. Terry Pratchett's hilarious fourth Discworld® story establishes once and for all that Death really is a laughing matter.
Funny and honest, 'Terry Pratchett’s Mort' endeavours to leave you laughing, transform your idea of life, and send you home feeling happy to be human.
