Playwright Detlef Sierck is to stage his greatest work – the recreation of the Great Enchanter Drachenfels's death in the fortress where it happened. But as darkness intrudes, the play becomes deadly and all too real, for actors and audience alike.

It's a bona fide classic from a master of macabre fiction. Dating back to the 1980s, it's a very different Warhammer World, but a timeless tale that evokes Shakespearean themes and explores Warhammer from an angle never seen before or since.

Detlef Sierck, the self-proclaimed greatest playwright in the world, has declared that his next production will be a recreation of the end of the Great Enchanter, Constant Drachenfels – to be staged at the very site of his death, the fortress of Drachenfels itself. But the castle's dark walls still hide a terrible and deadly secret which may make the first night of Detlef's masterpiece the last of his life.

Written by Jack Yeovil
