Lewes Drama Collective (formerly known as Lewes Theatre Youth Group) will complete the two-play stage adapted dramatisation of Philip Pullman's award-winning fantasy trilogy, His Dark Materials.
Published by Nick Hern Books, Nicholas Wright's version premiered on London's Royal National Theatre revolving Olivier stage in 2003 and was quickly followed by a much longer run due to the production being so popular.
Pullman's books were first released in 1995, have sold 17.5 million copies around the world over the years and have been translated into 40 different languages.
Since Lewes Drama Collective members performed Part I of His Dark Materials multi-world realities in early 2019 at Lewes Little Theatre, the BBC's own first series covered the events of Northern Lights/
Filmed in the UK and starring Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, Anne-Marie Duff, James Cosmo and Ariyon Bakare, this adaptation of Pullman's magical story has earned prestigious reviews and entertained millions of viewers across the globe.
Lewes Drama Collective bring Pullman's modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction to life on the 1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th of February 2020, with a cast local talented actors, who are aged between 11 and 18.
On their path to discover the truth, orphan Lyra Belacqua, her Daemon Pantalaimon and Will Parry have been through many different worlds so far, both familiar and unknown, and on their quest have encountered the sinister and all-controlling power of The Magisterium and the child-snatching Gobblers, as well as boat dwelling gyptians, mystical witches and armoured polar bears.
The quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust is set to keep audiences on the edge of their seats as the struggle between good and evil continues in the mysterious and yet strangely familiar worlds created by the controversial genius of Phillip Pullman.
Join Lyra and her friends as they make the arduous journey to the 'republic of heaven' through the dark and haunting land of the dead, where they encounter some fantastical and frightening beings and conclude the thrilling trilogy of His Dark Materials.
Please note that due to the extensive use of staging for this production only balcony and stall seats will be available.
