New York, New York, Cahoots NI is coming to town! The bags are packed, the passports are in hand and the company are very excited to get on that plane!

Cahoots NI in association with The Lyric Theatre are proudly presenting Nivelli’s War, an electrifying theatrical adventure set to captivate audiences in The New Victory Theater from the 28th April to the 11th of May after an amazing run at The Lyric Theatre Belfast in March 2017!

Nivelli’s War, written by Charles Way, directed by Paul Bosco Mc Eneaney with music by Garth McConaghie is based on the moving true story of a Holocaust survivor.

Following its run in The Lyric Theatre Belfast, Nivelli’s War is on its way to The New Victory Theater, New York City’s premier performing arts venue devoted to children and families, on 42nd Street in the iconic Times Square.

Nivelli’s War is told through a blend of theatre, magic, illusion and original music. The story begins at the end of WWII. Ernst, a young evacuee from Frankfurt, is all alone and far away from home when he meets and befriends the mysterious Mr. H, a stranger with a trick or two up his sleeve. Together, they set off down a road fraught with danger, hunger and uncertainty to find Ernst’s family in this dramatic story of an incredible journey and an unlikely friendship.

Director, Paul Bosco Mc Eneaney says, “We are thrilled to be bringing the magic of Nivelli’s War to the New Victory Theater. This moving story is brought to life with incredible illusions and an enchanting score combining spectacle with a truly human tale.”

Everyone at Cahoots NI is looking forward to a fantastic run in New York. We can’t wait to introduce Nivelli’s War to a wide new audience and to build new and existing relationships in the USA.

Our funding partners play a vital role in supporting the work created by Cahoots NI. We would like to thank Culture Ireland for their invaluable support in bringing Nivelli’s War to New York and we would also like to thank Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council for their continued support of the company.
