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 a pair of 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 heartbreaking story through dance for the very first time.
Based upon The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne by special arrangement with Miramax.
