"Contemporary, stylish, artistic and filled with great special effects... primed to make the young audience think deeply about the subject matter." – Mid-Ulster Mail

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. Fast friends, they set off down a road fraught with danger, hunger and uncertainty to return the young boy to his family. Original 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 unlikely friendship.
