Lyra Belacqua tries to prevent kidnapped children from becoming the subject of gruesome experiments, helps Will Parry search for his father, and finds that she and Will are caught in a battle between the forces of the Authority and those gathered by her uncle, Lord Asriel.

Summary

  • “‘Unstageable’ was the first reaction of the National Theatre’s artistic director, Nicholas Hytner, to the idea of dramatizing His Dark Materials. But last night’s opening night has triumphantly proved him wrong.”—The Sunday Times

    Nicholas Wright has revisited his adaptation of Philip Pullman’s best-selling fantasy trilogy, tightening and improving it, and this revised version is to be published alongside the reopening in the National Theatre’s 20042005 season.
