Audible Studios have produced an audio drama of Terry Pratchett's 37th Discworld novel Unseen Academicals.

If you haven't read the novel Unseen Academicals, this is what you need to know.

Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else. The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too). As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed for ever. Because the thing about football - the important thing about football - is that it is not just about football. Here we go! Here we go! Here we go!

The cast is headed up by Josie Lawerence (Agnes Nutter in Amazon Prime's Good Omens and Radio 4 drama of Good Omens) who plays Glenda SugarBean.

Joining Josie is Matthew Horne, Tony Gardener and Phil Davis as well as numerous other cast members in this epic tale which is directed by Dirk Maggs.

The adaptation will be available from Audible as of 2nd July 2018
