NT Live: The Book of Dust

When: Sat., April 16, 12 p.m. and Sat., April 23, 12 p.m. 2022

Set twelve years before the His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Phillip 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.

Director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe in this production broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.
