The "Fifth Elephant" : Stage Adaptation Paperback
Part of the Modern Plays series
A new stage adaptation of one of Pratchett's best-selling novels Commander Vimes is sent to wild, wintry and Transylvania-like Uberwald to establish trade links with the King of the Dwarfs but he ends up trying to stop and inter-species war.
On his side though, is a talking dog, a reformed vampyre and a self-made man.
You can tell he's self-made because the stitches still show. Vimes may have arrived as Ankh-Morpork's ambassador but he soon finds it's not all golden chocolate balls.
Now he's an escaped prisoner - out in the icy woods, wearing only the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya and being chased by a pack of fascist werewolves who don't play by the rules."One of the funniest authors alive" The Independent
