Duane Gooden plays the Mayor in the world premiere new musical production of The Book Thief at the Octagon Theatre

At a snow-covered graveside in 1930s Germany, an illiterate girl steals an abandoned book – Liesel Meminger’s first act of book thievery.

As Liesel’s appetite for books grows, so does the Nazi regime and the shadow of death is never far away. When her foster family hides a Jewish boxer in their basement, he teaches Liesel the power of words and together they plant seeds of kindness in a world set against them.

Playing between the 17th September – 15th October 2022. More information and tickets can be found here
