Overview

“‘Unstageable’ was the first reaction of the National Theatre’s artistic director, Nicholas Hytner, to the idea of dramatizing His Dark Materials. But last night’s opening night has triumphantly proved him wrong.”—The Sunday Times

Nicholas Wright has revisited his adaptation of Philip Pullman’s best-selling fantasy trilogy, tightening and improving it, and this revised version is to be published alongside the reopening in the National Theatre’s 20042005 season.
