His Dark Materials (Stage Version) (NHB Modern Plays)

190 printed pages
A two-play dramatisation of Philip Pullman's extraordinary award-winning fantasy trilogy, first seen at the National Theatre.
His Dark Materials takes us on a thrilling journey through worlds familiar and unknown. For Lyra and Will, its two central characters, it's a coming of age and a transforming spiritual experience. Their great quest demands a savage struggle against the most dangerous of enemies. They encounter fantastical creatures in parallel worlds – rebellious angels, soul-eating spectres, child-catching Gobblers and the armoured bears and witch-clans of the Arctic. Finally, before reaching, perhaps, the republic of heaven, they must visit the land of the dead.
Note to performers: although conceived for a theatre with rich resources, this adaptation can also be staged in imaginative ways without the aid of sophisticated technology.
'Nicholas Wright… has risen to the challenge with brilliance' – Mail on Sunday
'"Unstageable" was the first reaction of the National Theatre's artistic director, Nicholas Hytner, to the idea of dramatising His Dark Materials. But last night's opening has triumphantly proved him wrong' – Sunday Times
'Children's theatre of an uncommon maturity and ambition… dazzling in just the right way… moments of heart-stopping simplicity' – Independent
'The hottest ticket in town long before press day… Book to see it next Christmas' – Financial Times
