Description


Moist von Lipwig was a con artist, a fraud, and a man faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork's ailing postal service back on its feet.

It was a tough decision.

With the help of a golem who has been at the bottom of a hole in the ground for over two hundred years, a pin fanatic, and Junior Postman Groat, he's got to see that the mail gets through. In taking on the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company and a midnight killer, he's also got to stay alive.

Getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart would be nice, too.

In the mad world of the mail, can a criminal succeed where honest men have failed and died? Perhaps there's a shot at redemption for a man who's prepared to push the envelope...

Going Postal is the stage adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s latest best-selling Discworld novel.
