What Audiences Have Said So Far
Marc Burrows took this show to the Edinburgh Fringe festival in August 2023, and received excellent feedback for The Magic of Terry Pratchett. Here are some excerpts from audience and professional reviews:
‘ You don’t have to be a fan (of Terry Pratchett’s books) to enjoy the show. Marc has woven plenty of his own laughs and interesting observations into the show and his own love of Pratchett’s work shines through. Highly recommended!’
‘Loved this show. It was perfectly pitched for fans who’ve read every Discworld novel, people who’ve never heard of Terry Pratchett but came anyway, and everyone in between’
‘You should go, as fans should, and everyone else is likely to be a fan-in-waiting who will appreciate this spoiler-free and delightful curation of Pratchett’s impact and talent.’
