Synopsis

Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job…

Meet Mortimer. An awkward, unemployable young man. Soon, however, he gets an offer he can’t refuse – free room, free board, and all for a business that will never be short of customers.
He doesn’t even need to be dead to take the position.

Being Death’s apprentice, however, comes with great responsibilities. Death is a difficult boss to work for and, understandably, Mort begins to make mistakes. Coupled with the fact he’s fallen in love with a Princess who should be dead, will Mort regret his unique career choice?

Wildly witty and inventive, this new musical adaptation based on Terry Pratchett’s classic Discworld novel has been developed for the last two years, and is a ‘dead funny’ treat for all ages.
