A dark stormy sea with a rowing boat fighting a wave. In the boat we see a young boy trying to steer with an oar, and opposite him a young girl holding a baby wrapped up. By each of the people is a small animal that appears to be glowing. The wooden boat as the words 'La Belle Sauvage' carved onto the side. In the background we see the iconic Tower Bridge.

The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage

Audio described by VocalEyes.

Philip Pullman sets The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage twelve years before his epic His Dark Materials trilogy.

Two young people and their dæmons, 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. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.

Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe to direct a gripping adaptation by Bryony Lavery.
