West coast premiere of Terry Pratchett’s Monstrous Regiment at Taproot Theatre

by | May 7, 2023

Latitude Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of Terry Pratchett’s Monstrous Regiment, a wickedly funny look at the absurdities of war and ambiguities of identity. Adapted by Christopher Hainsworth and directed by Christopher Kidder-Mostrom, Monstrous Regiment will play May 14 – June 4, 2023 in the Isaac Studio Theater at 212 N. 85th St. in Seattle. Single tickets are now on sale at latitudetheatre.org or at (425) 835-2794.

From the pages of the Discworld novels, comes a story filled with loyalty, love, monsters, and mayhem: Borogravia is at war. Again. When Polly Perks’ brother goes missing in action, she disguises herself as a young man, enlists in the army and heads to the front lines in search of her sibling. But all is not as it seems, and Polly soon learns that she isn’t the only one in this band of “brothers” protecting secrets. Making their way to the front, this misfit company might just overcome insurmountable odds to become unlikely victors.
