Brisbane Arts Theatre continues its annual Pratchett’s series, playing host to the world premiere of the latest adaptation of one of Sir Terry Pratchett's brilliant comedy fantasies.

From the Discworld series comes The Last Hero ‐ an epic tale of a small band of geriatric barbarians determined to take out their grumpiness on the gods who let them get old by returning fire to the heavens with interest. The trouble is, that just might mean the end of the world, so a small team of the Disc's first astronauts have to stop them. A policeman, a brilliant if somewhat vague inventor, a cowardly wizard, and an inquisitive orangutan.

Terry Pratchett is the biggest selling living author in the English language. He takes a perverse pride in being the most stolen author in the UK library system. His work blends fantasy, satire and social insight. He has written nearly 40 books set on the Discworld ‐ a flat world carried on the back of four elephants who are themselves carried on the back of a gigantic star‐spanning turtle.

The Last Hero has been adapted by BAT's Ian 'Renoir' Rennie, a veteran of numerous Discworld shows at the Theatre. "It's been a great privilege, and a great pleasure, to have had Sir Terry's approval to put this show together," said Renoir. This show came about after the success of Renoir's production of Nanny Ogg's Cookbook in front of Sir Terry at the Australian Discworld Convention.

At Sir Terry and Renoir's request, a percentage of all ticket sales are being donated to charity. Gills Old Bastards" are the local branch of a charity who have been raising funds to support medical research in Australia since 1968. The Orangutan Project raises funds to aid in the protection of one of the world's most loved but most endangered animals.
