The play was relatable to students using project group work as the premise to bring in notable moments from the text. Students were also challenged with questions and ideas raised during the performance which would allow them to have a more vibrant discussion in their classrooms.

Teacher Audience

Though the barbed-wire fence of the camp separates 9 year-old Bruno and his Jewish friend, Shmuel, the boys begin a forbidden friendship, oblivious to the real nature of their surroundings....

Behind The Scenes


The play was extremely engaging and entertaining. It helped students understand the text better and appreciate the piece. The parallel story was brilliant and effective in reaching out to students in its simplicity.

Secondary School Teacher

Besides the seamless transition between settings, what was equally, if not more captivating was how the cast made the show an enjoyable, interactive experience for the audience. A narrative that unpacks assumptions, surface intentions and questions decisions. Worth a watch!

Secondary School Teacher

The show was a lively and engaging one, and it certainly brought the text to life. We thoroughly enjoyed it as it spoke to the hearts of both teenagers and adults alike. My students were totally immersed in the performance and a few of my students even felt emotional at the end of it. Great job!
