His Dark Materials Parts 1 & 2, is a brilliant adaptation by Nicholas Wright of Philip Pullman’s best-selling trilogy: Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.

Essentially a love story, His Dark Materials revolves around Lyra and Will, two young teenagers from different worlds. The pair join forces and share adventures beyond their wildest imaginings. As their friendship deepens, the teenagers are drawn into a cosmic battle between good and evil, encountering armoured bears, soul-eating Spectres, witches from Northern Lands and terrifying Harpies in The Land of the Dead before they face their human foes in a final, breath-taking battle.

Ten years on from Next Stage’s first production of His Dark Materials Parts 1 & 2 Next Stage Youth’s talented 11-18 year olds are proud to be staging the company’s third revival of these plays.

This is an epic journey for actors and audiences alike. Stunning costumes and masks, an original musical score, special effects and lighting designed for the fast-moving and complex plot make this a theatrical event not to be missed.

This amateur production is present by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
