The Golden Compass, the movie adaptation of the first part of Philip Pullman's great trilogy that begins with Northern Lights, was a bit of a disappointment, but Nicholas Wright's stage version of the novels is much more the real thing. Performed over two nights, it offers an opportunity for puppetry and lots of other kinds of theatrical inventiveness to tell the story of Lyra and Will and their encounters with witches, armoured bears, cliff-ghasts and parallel worlds. Rachel Kavanaugh and Sarah Esdaile direct a cast of 25 led by Amy McAllister.
