In 2020, Marc penned the first ever biography of Sir Terry. The book received critical acclaim, won a Locus Award and was embraced by fans.
This new, live multimedia show
, based on the book, was then created with the full endorsement and support of Narrativia,
the company founded to protect and promote the late author's work in association with his estate.
The Magic of Terry Pratchett
is a comic lecture
in which Burrows explores Pratchett's influences, his rise to fame, impact, and unique life, becoming one of the most beloved storytellers of all time.
From the national treasure's days as a school librarian, his time as a trainee journalist to his untimely death in 2015 and in keeping with Pratchett's own style, the show is a gently comic celebration and exploration of his work.
It will also seriously examine his death, and the activism he was involved with toward the end of his life surrounding dementia treatment and the right- to-die; an important part of his story and legacy.
In addition to using the framework of the The Magic of Terry Pratchett book, the show will incorporate additional elements of Rob Wilkins' official biography, Terry Pratchett: A Life in Footnotes, as well as licensed media.
