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.

Florida Sci-Fi Author Launches BACKTRECKFlorida Sci-Fi Author Launches BACKTRECK
by BWW News Desk - Apr 28, 2015

Scheduled for release on 5/1/2015, the novel 'BackTrek' is the first of three science fiction novels to be published by IONized Publishing Group from Florida Indie Science Fiction Author, Kelvin Kelley. Set in the near future, the story explores the moral dilemma faced by ex Army CID, Homicide Detective Jack King, when his entire family is brutally slaughtered by a psychopathic assassin. He travels back in time through an experimental portal in an effort to stop the murders before they can occur. If he fails, their blood will be on his hands. The newly functioning machine can only open a portal to a specific point in the past. June 7th at 1845 hours, the night his family died. But when Jack emerges in the past, he cannot stop events from occurring as they did the first time. He desperately races against time tracking the man who will kill his family, while trying to avoid his other self and accidentally setting off a sequence of events that could disrupt the future forever. If he can stop the killer in time, they live. If not, they die. Again. In recent interview with GoodReads about 'BackTrek,' Kelley stated, 'What would happen if you could go back in time, in your own timeline, and affect events before they occurred. This spawned the idea that if in fact you could travel backwards in time, could you stop a crime before it was ever committed, and if so, what moral ramifications would come to light, and how would you deal with them.' The ebook edition is available for pre-order now through Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and IBooks, and is set for final global release by IONized Publishing Group on 5/1/2015, with the print edition scheduled for release on 6/1/2015. Kelley's second book in the three book deal with IPG, Immortal, is also available for pre-order, with an announced global release date of 7/1/2015. This second science fiction novel explores the morality of survival of the species in a post apocalyptic world. For more information on these or other titles, or the author, please contact IONized Publishing Group. About Author A long time avid science fiction fan, Kelvin Kelley loves to ask the question, what if? It is that question that leads him to explore the amazing possibilities and then bring them to life in his novels. He resides with his beloved wife, Charlotte, in the Nation's oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida. (more...)
