Terry Pratchet/Stephen Briggs - All the Discworld's a Stage


  • Produktbeschreibung (amazon.de):

    Feet of Clay

    Someone is killing Lord Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork. No one knows who, no one knows why and, worst of all, no one knows how
    – he just gets weaker and weaker. But it’s not just Vetinari – across the city, people are being murdered, but there’s no trace of anything
    alive having been at the crime scene. Commander Vimes, Head of the City Watch, is a man who hates ‘clues’. He and his team must question
    everyone – the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker. In a city teeming with vampires, werewolves, dwarfs with attitude and golems,
    Vimes must solve the crimes and save the Patrician.

    The Rince Cycle

    As a punishment, failed wizard Rincewind is given the task of guiding and safeguarding the Disc’s first tourist, Twoflower (with his magical
    luggage on legs). As they travel the city and beyond, they meet the world’s oldest hero, Cohen the Barbarian. With him, and with Bethan
    (a qualified sacrificial victim), they encounter druids, trolls, adventurers, a hairdresser and a power-crazed wizard. Oh, and Death. But not
    fatally. Did we mention that Rincewind also has to save the world from destruction by a huge red star that will collide with the Discworld at
    Hogswatch? The Rince Cycle is mostly based on The Light Fantastic, with bits of The Colour of Magic and Sourcery added for good measure.

    Unseen Academicals

    ‘Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Ankh-Morpork, where we lay our scene…’

    Football divides the city. Each area has its own team – and rivalry means supporters never mix. Until a Dimwell fan falls for a Dolly Sisters girl.
    And now an ancient bequest means the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic. Luckily they’re coached by the
    mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too). As the match approaches, four lives
    are entangled and changed forever. Because the thing about football – the important thing about football – is that it is not just about football.

    Eigenzitat aus amazon.de:

    Viele der Scheibenweltromane sind in den letzten Jahrzehnten auf die Bühne gebracht worden - und manche sogar auf den Bildschirm. Die vorliegende Sammlung ist eine sehr erfreuliche Dramenfassung von "Feet of Clay", eine weniger erfreuliche, da erzähleriisch gebrochene der ersten beiden Rincewindromane mit dem Titel "The Rince Circle" und eine wiederum sehr erfreuliche Adaption von "Unseen Academicals". Stadtwache, Rincewind und Fußball - eine etwas unerwartee Zusammenstellung.
    In einem Vorwort erklärt Briggs, warum bestimmten Veränderungen notwendig gewesen sind und was man beachten sollte, wenn man selbst eine Pratchett-Titel für die Bühne adaptieren möchte. Eine schöne Ergänzung zu jeder Pratchett-Sammlung.
