Terry Pratchett’s Nation to be new family epic at the National Theatre

Following the highly successful productions of His Dark Materials, Coram Boy and most recently War Horse, Nation will be adapted by Mark Ravenhill. Directed by Melly Still, the production will open in the Olivier Theatre in November and is sponsored by Accenture, supporters of Innovation at the National Theatre.

Terry Pratchett’s Nation is a brilliantly wise and witty story about two children from cultures a world apart coming of age on a desert island, which challenges the way we think about identity, nationhood and the history of the Empire.

Nation was published by Doubleday in September 2008.
