Following His Dark Materials, Coram Boy and War Horse, the National Theatre's latest spectacular family production is an exhilarating adventure story of survival and self-discovery based on a novel by Terry Pratchett.



A parallel world, 1860. Two teenagers thrown together by a tsunami that has destroyed Mauís village and left Daphne shipwrecked on his South Pacific island, thousands of miles from home. One wears next to nothing, the other a long white dress; neither speaks the otherís language; somehow they must learn to survive. As starving refugees gather, Daphne delivers a baby, milks a pig, brews beer and does battle with a mutineer. Mau fights cannibal Raiders, discovers the world is round and questions the reality of his tribeís fiercely patriarchal gods. Together they come of age, overseen by a foul-mouthed parrot, as they discard old doctrine to forge a new Nation.



Live music, thrilling dance and spectacular puppets combine to bring to life the spectacular and surprising world of Terry Pratchett's Nation on the National Theatre stage.

Diet Doc Offers Calorie Loading Diet Plans for Weight Loss
by BWW News Desk - May 27, 2016

Diet Doc developed their calorie loading diet plans that actually work to generate the best weight loss safely, quickly and comfortably. Their patients are able to enjoy summer festivities without worrying about adding extra pounds and are looking better and feeling more confident than ever before. By combining the most modern medical understanding with decades of scientific and nutritional research, Diet Doc developed calorie loading diet plans that enable their patients to lose weight, even during the summer season when back yard barbecues are in full swing. They incorporated evidence, researched in the 1980s that focused on the link between athletes, nutrition and body performance. They learned that loading up on high fat, high carbohydrate foods for 2-3 days increases the body's metabolism and fat oxidation and prepares it to begin searching for stored fat that has become comfortably and dangerously hidden in the hard to reach places. They have helped over 97% of their patients lose 20 or more pounds from the belly, hips, thighs, underarms and buttocks. Diet Doc understands that reducing caloric intake and eliminating carbohydrates and processed foods can be difficult for most people. It is for this reason that they incorporate their pure, prescription diet products that work perfectly with their meal and snack plans - each created by their certified nutritionists and customized to the age, gender, activity level, nutritional needs and medical conditions of each patient. This powerful blend signals the hypothalamus to search out stored fat, force it into the bloodstream, burn it for energy and quickly flush it from the system while allowing patients to focus 100% on their weight loss goals by eliminating between meal hunger, carbohydrate cravings, dieting headaches and loss of energy. Because Diet Doc is a medical weight loss company and, because each patient is evaluated, guided and monitored by their staff of specially trained fast weight loss doctors, nurses and nutritionists, they are able to include their prescription diet products to help their patients stay on track without unsafe, unhealthy or uncomfortable side effects. And, because all of their prescription diet products are manufactured in FDA approved, fully licensed, U.S. based pharmacies, their patients can be certain that that they are receiving the safest and most effective prescription diet products available on today's market. New patients who are interested in getting a head start on their weight loss goals before summer is in full bloom are invited to call 888-934-4451 or simply visit the company's official website to complete an initial health questionnaire and schedule a personal online consultation with a Diet Doc doctor. After a review and assessment of the entire system, medical conditions and nutritional needs, patients receive a full written report detailing recommendations for the safest and best method of weight loss. Safe and healthy weight loss is a science. For this reason, Diet Doc has combined the most brilliant minds in the country and have incorporated decades of scientific research with the most modern medical and nutritional understanding, enabling them to create calorie loading diet plans that can help people of any age, gender, size or shape restore their health and regain their figure safely, quickly and permanently. About the Company: Diet Doc Weight Loss is the Nation's leader in medical, weight loss offering a full line of prescription medication, doctor, nurse and nutritional coaching support. For over a decade, Diet Doc has produced a sophisticated, doctor designed weight loss program that addresses each individual specific health need to promote fast, safe and long term weight loss.
