National Theatre Live: Book of Dust
Set 12 years before his epic His Dark Materials trilogy, Book of Dust 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.
This is a screening of a previously recorded event, not a live production. The production was originally broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.
