Divided by a barbed wire fence, Bruno doesn’t understand anything about where Shmuel lives, or who he is. To him, he’s just a new friend – a boy wearing striped pyjamas.
As this unlikely friendship blossoms against the backdrop of the unthinkable events of World War II, Bruno’s childlike curiosity leads this poignant story to a devastating conclusion.
The UK’s foremost narrative ballet company, Northern Ballet, present this heart-breaking story through dance for the very first time.
Based upon The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne by special arrangement with Miramax.
Parental/guardian guidance is advised for this production, with themes more suitable for secondary school children upwards.
