The Whale Theatre has announced Philip Pullman’s The Book of Dust will be screened later this month.
The theatre, will stream the show, which is based on just one of three of Pullman’s fantasy novels live from London’s Bridge Theatre.
Audiences can enjoy the show on this side of the water as the production is in conjunction with National Theatre Live, an initiative operated by the Royal National Theatre in London, which broadcasts live via satellite, performances of their productions to cinemas and arts centres around the world.
The production is based around two young people and their dæmons, who have everything at stake, finding 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.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, waters are rising and storms are brewing in this adaption, which broadcasts on 17 February.
Tickets are available via The Whale Theatre’s website, with prices set from €17.50.
