Philip Pullman sets The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage twelve years before his epic His Dark Materials trilogy.
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.
Seventeen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe to direct a gripping adaptation by Bryony Lavery.
The fantastical world of Philip Pullman is coming to the stage once again, with the world premiere adaptation of The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage at London’s Bridge Theatre. Join a baby Lyra and her two young protectors on a daring river chase in Nicholas Hytner’s highly anticipated new production. Plan your trip now and book your The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage tickets.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Pullman’s work has been adapted. His original trilogy, His Dark Materials, has spawned a Hollywood film, a recent BBC/HBO TV series, and an acclaimed stage version at the National Theatre back in 2003. The latter bodes extremely well for The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage London production.
This new story, the first in Pullman’s The Book of Dust trilogy, is actually a prequel to His Dark Materials. Here, the heroine of Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, Lyra Belacqua, is just a baby in need of protection. Young Malcolm and Alice rescue her from evil forces and escape down the river during an epic flood, hoping to reach her father, Lord Asriel. Bryony Lavery is adapting the story for stage and it promises to be a thrilling adventure, so make sure you don’t miss The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage at the Bridge Theatre.
This slick, modern London venue can be configured in numerous ways, which should prove handy when dealing with Pullman’s world — there’s switches between recognisable parts of our own reality and mystical elements, such as daemons, the animal-like creatures which reflect their person’s inner self. Pullman also addresses organised religion through the all-powerful Magisterium, as well as philosophical and scientific ideas. That should make The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage play a rich experience for audiences of all ages. It’s also bound to be a very popular booking, so don’t leave it too late. Buy your The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage tickets now.
