"★★★★ If there has been a more accomplished comedic ensemble on a Chicago stage this year, I've not seen it."  –Chicago Tribune
"★★★★ A comedy with top-notch production values that keeps the audience laughing... one of the more original stories you can see in a theatre."  –Time Out Chicago
"A comedic triumph, a wonderfully funny absurdist romp."  –Chicago Theatre Review

Borogravia is at war. Again. When Polly Perks’ brother goes missing in action, she cuts off her hair, stuffs a sock down her breeches, and enlists, hoping to find him. Passing successfully as a young man, she soon discovers that she's not alone in protecting a secret and that nothing in the improbable war is as it seems. Scrambling to survive both the enemy and their untried officer, Polly’s misfit company makes its way to the front, where it might just prove to be the least likely regiment to ever win a battle. A wickedly funny look at the absurdities of war and ambiguities of identity, in a world premiere adaptation based on the 2003 Discworld novel.

A world premiere based on the novel by Terry Pratchett
Adapted by Chris Hainsworth
Directed by Kevin Theis

Join us for a Q&A with adaptor Chris Hainsworth and members of the cast, following the 4pm matinee on Sunday, July 13th. Learn more about Discworld and the process of bringing Monstrous Regiment to the stage!
