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 Mau’s 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 other’s 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 tribe’s 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.

BWW Reviews: Well Performed Frustration in ACT's BETHANY
by Jay Irwin - Apr 18, 2014

There's a plot device that has annoyed me since I was a kid. Sitcoms use it a lot. It's where the main character keeps lying and/or making obviously poor decisions which keeps digging them deeper and deeper into a hole until you just want to scream at them, "Just tell the truth and do the right thing already!" In sitcoms it all gets resolved in a fun way in 22 minutes and everyone learns a valuable lesson. But when this plot device is combined with the Nation's current economic woes as is the case with Laura Marks' play "Bethany", currently playing at ACT, that frustration with the characters never seems to end leading to a bleak evening which left me asking, "why?" Is this a journey we need to take or is it simply frustration for frustration's sake and shining a spotlight on the plight of some to make others without the plight feel better about their lives?

Political Thriller 'Blood Profit$' Set for Release, 4/25
by BWW News Desk - Apr 18, 2014

When the safety and soul of the United States are threatened, three once-naïve Americans risk the ultimate sacrifice to uncover and expose a global conspiracy to defraud the Nation of trillions of dollars in an operation funded by Washington war profiteering and illegal drug sales. The despicable activities are sanctioned by the CIA, controlled by Mafia and laundered by Wall Street traders. That's the plot of 'Blood Profit$: The Lithium Conspiracy,' a novel written by James N. Patrick Sr. and J. Victor Tomaszek. The novel, which arrives in print April 25 and is available now in e-book form, takes readers through a maze of political corruption and intrigue at the highest levels of government. 'Blood Profit$: The Lithium Conspiracy' (Roundfire Books/ISBN 978-1-78279-483-7/$18.95 paperback/$7.99 e-book) is the first book of a trilogy by first-time author Patrick and five-time novelist Tomaszek. The next book, 'Blood Profit$: The Price of Indifference,' is scheduled for release in late 2014 or early 2015. 'We started writing this book via email several years ago, coming at the story from vastly different political perspectives and life experiences,' said Patrick, who met Tomaszek through a shared love of alpacas. 'The main characters, Generation Xers, are like many people the readers probably know, and they face ethical and moral decisions throughout the story.' Tomaszek said 'Blood Profit$: The Lithium Conspiracy' explores how far the United States could fall as greed, entitlements and corruption all gain greater acceptance. 'Blood Profit$: The Lithium Conspiracy' is available at www.Roundfire-Books.com and other major book sellers, including www.Amazon.com. About James N. Patrick Sr. and J. Victor Tomaszek Patrick is a former senior executive, research think tank founder, keynote speaker and life coach. He is a specialist in world affairs, trend analysis and business and change. Patrick owns Patricks' Pastures Alpaca Ranch in Denton, Texas. He also owns and operates Old Irish Bed & Breakfast - Wedding and Event Center in Denton. Tomaszek is an amateur operatic tenor, a Vietnam-era United States Air Force veteran and airborne firefighter and resided in Europe and Asia for extended periods, which he believes adds culture and spice to his novels. He raises alpacas in a Chicago suburb. Tomaszek's other novels are not political thrillers. (more...)
