Wyrd Sisters is the Waiheke Theatre Company’s 21st production and what a delightful coming of age it is. An entertaining night of magick, murder, destiny and universal truths delivered in Terry Pratchett’s distinct satirical fantasy style.

From the adolescent exuberance of Theo Watson as TomJohn, to the experienced statesman of WTC’s John Brown playing a version of the Bard himself, the sense of ensemble and whānau that this cast share is palpable.
The Wyrd Sisters, whilst they certainly aren’t meddling, drive the action along with three very different versions of the archetypal witch.
