UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

The Book Thief
Information for The Book Thief at Octagon Theatre, Bolton (Musical). In 1930s Germany, young orphan Liesel stands next to her brother's grave and picks up a book abandoned in the snow - her first act of book thievery. As Liesel's appetite for books grows, so does the Nazis' regime and the shadow of Death is never far away. When her foster family hide a Jewish man in the basement, danger creeps nearer and Liesel's life will change forever. World Premiere. A superbly crafted and huantingly beautiful tale based on Marcus Zusak's worldwide best-selling novel, seen on stage for the very first timein this world premiere musical.
