Mort Comes To Us All

Performed by a student cast of Fourth to First Years and supported by a theatrical crew of senior school students and staff, the production of Sir Terry Pratchett’s comic fantasy, “Mort”, was a delightfully strange concoction with outstanding performances from the actors.

Death comes to us all, but when he came to Mort, he offered him a job... When Mort is finally left in charge for an evening, he allows his heart to rule his head and soon the whole of causality, and the future of the Discworld itself, is at risk. As Death is not the kind of boss you want to admit mistakes to, can Mort put everything right and save the universe before he destroys the fabric of reality and gets fired?

The whole cast numbering over forty pupils, including the ensemble, were fantastic but special mention must go to the following: Jack Furlong and Orla McEvoy who shared the role of Mort; Rory Webster and Matt Kenyon as Death; Anton Ball as Death’s mysterious manservant Albert; Amelia Rogers as Death’s daughter Ysabell; Scott Watson and Sean May as the Wizard Cutwell; and Sophie Akka and Lottie Woodmansey as Princess Keli.

Mrs Chaplain expertly guided proceedings from the Director’s chair, whilst the tireless efforts of an army of backstage crew and volunteers enabled the magic to happen.
