His Dark Materials Gets a Rewrite???
Date: 10 August 2004
The Nationalís stage version of Philip Pullmanís His Dark Materials returns to the NT Olivier this Christmas, but donít be surprised if itís not quite as you remember it the first time around (See News, 9 Jan 2004). We understand that Nicholas Wrightís two-part stage adaptation, directed by NT artistic director, is undergoing some substantial rewrites before its next performances, which will run in rep with each other from 20 December 2004 to 2 April 2005. One constant, however, may be Anna Maxwell Martin, who's in talks to reprise her role as Lyra. Before that, sheíll star this autumn in the premiere of Joe Penhallís Dumb Show at the Royal Court (See News, 13 Jul 2004). No official Pullman casting has yet been announced.
