Project Description

Nivelli’s War

At the end of WWII, Ernst, a young evacuee from Frankfurt, finds himself alone and far away from home when he meets the mysterious Mr. H, a stranger with a trick or two up his sleeve. They set off down a road fraught with danger, hunger and uncertainty to return the young boy to his family. Delicate piano music and dreamlike stage effects help tell this dramatic story of two survivors who become each other’s ally, protector and confidant. Inspired by a true story, Nivelli’s War is a vivid and moving theatrical account of an incredible journey and magical friendship. Nivelli’s War is presented in association with The Lyric Theatre, Belfast.
