NT Live Broadcast – The Book of Dust

September 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Book of Dust — La Belle Sauvage 

by Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery, directed by Nicholas Hytner

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 dæmons, 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 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. Broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.

Adult $15 | Senior $10 | Student $8 | All fees included
