Based on a novel by Terry Pratchett,
adapted by Mark Ravenhill,
directed by Melly Still
In a parallel world in 1860, two teenagers are thrown together by a tsunami that has destroyed Mau’s village and left Daphne shipwrecked on his South Pacific island. Together they come of age, overseen by a foul-mouthed parrot, as they discard old doctrine to forge a new Nation.
Following His Dark Materials, Coram Boy and War Horse, the National stages Mark Ravenhill’s exhilarating adaptation of Terry Prachett’s latest witty and challenging adventure story.
