as part of Theatre From London
Part of the Theatre From London Series: Set twelve years before the epic HIS DARK MATERIALS trilogy, this gripping adaptation of THE BOOK OF DUST – LA BELLE SAUVAGE revisits Philip Pullman’s fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.
Two young people and their demons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the center of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.
Eighteen years after his ground-breaking production of HIS DARK MATERIALS at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe.
