Adapted by Stephen Russell, The Firework-Maker's Daughter is award winning children's writer Philip Pullman's brilliant and inspiring story about Lila, who dreams of becoming a firework-maker just like her father. Her hopes are dashed when her father tells her it is no job for a girl. Setting out in secret for Mount Merapi in search of the elusive royal sulphur, Lila faces pirates and supernatural creatures until Chulak arrives to help her with Hamlet the elephant. And soon she must return to save her imprisoned father with a firework display that must rival the best on earth! Fun for all the family, and fizzing with drama and magic, The Firework-Maker's Daughter opened at Birmingham Stage in November 2010.

Review:

Lila wants to be a firework maker just like her father, but before she can even start she has to make a hazardous, life-threatening journey to the den of the evil Fire-Fiend, battling her way through strange lands and nightmarish scenarios with elephants and pirates and strange beasts a-plenty tempting her from her path.

Philip Pullman has plucked a rare, exotic and totally bewitching idea from thin air and has turned it into the kind of magical adventure that all children dream of, crackling and sparkling with the same thrilling intensity as the fireworks in Lila's dreams. Lila herself is divine--the perfect blend of light-footed heroine and stubborn adventurer--and The Firework- Maker's Daughter, illustrated by Nick Harris, is a deserving winner of the Smarties Book Prize. A simply superb, gripping, action-packed adventure that will live long in the memory of anyone who enters Lila's world. --Susan Harrison

Review:

"Adapted for the stage in a colourful and musical manner. Catchy tunes, impressive costumes and subtle yet effective special effects make for a fun family day out and highlights include the stunning costume of talking white elephant Hamlet and the beautifully crafted puppets used to help tell the tale." - Amy Burns, "The Stage" --The Stage
