    Senior School Play 'His Dark Materials' (Ashton Theatre) (22nd - 25th November)

    Philip Pulman's epic trilogy (The Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass) were first adapted for the stage by Nicholas Wright in 2010 - and have proved to be every bit as popular in performance as they have been on the stage.

    The play follows the coming of age of Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry as they wander through a series of parallel universes. Combining elements of fantasy, including witches, angels and armoured bears, with complex ideas from the worlds of theology and physics, this is a thrilling and thought-provoking spectacle for all ages.

    Our production will form the centrepiece of a seris of lectures on Philip Pulman's literary, scientific and theological influences, from string theory to Paradise Lost.

    FREE admission.

    Tickets available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/shrewsburyschool or 01743 280812.
