The Book of Dust (NHB Modern Plays) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Two young people and their daemons, 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. As the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others. Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage is set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy.

Bryony Lavery's stage adaptation was first performed at the Bridge Theatre, London, in December 2021, directed by Nicholas Hytner, whose groundbreaking production of His Dark Materials was a critical and commercial success at the National Theatre.
