His Dark Materials Part 1

"His Dark Materials" by Phillip Pullman is an amazing set of novels (cheers to my best mate Matt for turning me on to it). My wife Ali got us tickets to see the play version for my Christmas present, but because it's so popular, we had to wait till now to go. There is no way you could condense the 3 novels into one play - so they have split it into two. It is at the National Theater (well the Olivier at the NT) and it is one of the most amazing theatrical experiences I have ever had. The novels are exceptional, but the stage play was awesome. We'll be going to see part two next Monday and then I'll give it a proper review - but based on the first half - go and see it! You won't be disappointed.
