Witches, armoured polar bears, soul-eating spectres and rebellious angels are all encountered by characters in a new production of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.

The play, being staged by the Royal & Derngate Youth Theatre, follows the coming of age of two children caught up in a war against celestial powers.

During their quest, the two fugitives encounter many interesting characters in a journey which they hope will take them to The Republic of Heaven.

Part One of His Dark Materials can be seen on Wednesday, July 10 at 7.30pm and Saturday, July 13 at 2.30pm. Part Two will be staged on Thursday, July 11 and Saturday, July 13 at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £8 per performance or £12 for both parts. To book, call 01604 624811.
