Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman’s fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.
Two young people and their daemons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre 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 for some, the source of infinite corruption for others.
Eighteen years after his groundbreaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe.
Timings to be confirmed once the show has opened.
