In December 2003, The National Theatre in London presented a stage version of the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman in two, three hour long parts, performed back to back or on separate nights, directed by Nicholas Hytner and written by Nicholas Wright. The NT ran a revival of the play again in November of 2004. The revival has now ended, and there are no plans to bring it back for a third time--we will keep this section of the site online as an archive of the information relating to the play.
