The Art of Darkness: A wonderful success, 28 Mar 2004
Many of the fans of His Dark Materials, like myself, were unable to make it to London for the stage adaptation of His Dark Materials. Thankfully we have Robert Butler's 'The Art of Darkness' to compensate.
Butler had exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the staging process from the day it began, and his experience as a theatre critic allowed him to know just what to write about. Everything a fan could want to know about how it was done is included, along with plenty of photographs of all of the details.
Whether you're a fan of the books and couldn't see the play, someone who did see the play and still wonders how they did it, or whether you want to prepare for the return of the play in November, The Art of Darkness is the book for you.
