Ends 19th February 2022.

The battle is for Dust, salvation or corruption. Two young people must care for a child in whom the future lies.

Bryony Lavery adapts a Philip Pullman novel for Nicholas Hytner to direct.

Not available. Professional reviewers agree that this really is one for fans - casual visitors are unlikely to fully comprehend it, though the story itself is easy enough to follow.

Nicely done, with praise in particular for the video projections and central casting of Samuel Creasey and Ayesha Dharker in particular. 

The problem is that it is too light for adults, too dark for many children and lacking something distinctive to believe in that world unless already familiar with it.

A brave effort with mostly 3 star reviews seems to be the general summary.
