DetailsHis Dark Materials
takes us on a thrilling journey through worlds familiar and unknown. For Lyra and Will, its two central characters, it s a coming of age and a transforming spiritual experience. Their great quest demands a savage struggle against the most dangerous of enemies. They encounter fantastical creatures in parallel worlds - rebellious angels, soul-eating spectres, child-catching Gobblers and the armoured bears and witch-clans of the Arctic. Finally, before reaching, perhaps, the republic of heaven, they must visit the land of the dead.Book by Philip Pullman. Producer York Theatre Royal Youth Theatre. Adapted by Nicholas Wright.
