Best selling book hits stage

The theatre version of The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas can be seen onstage at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal next year.

Based on the best-selling novel by John Boyne, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a heart-wrenching tale of an unlikely friendship between two innocent boys.

Set during World War II, the story is seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and devastating consequences.

Bruno’s friendship with Shmuel takes him from innocence to revelation, revealing the poetic irony that through a child’s eye everyone can appear the same.

The book was also filmed in 2008 in a cinematic version directed by British filmmaker Mark Herman (Brassed Off, Little Voice).

Brought to you by The Children’s Touring Partnership who have previously produced Swallows and Amazons and Goodnight Mister Tom, this world premiere of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas on stage, promises to be a deeply moving and thought provoking production.

It can be seen at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham from March 17-25.

Tickets are £20 - £10 plus concessions, available on 0115 989 5555.
