Multi award-winning author Jean-Claude Grumberg’s best-selling French language novella, The Most Precious of Goods, now translated into 20 languages, is storytelling at its most profound. This stage production, directed and translated by Nicolas Kent, opens at the Marylebone Theatre on 22 January to coincide with National Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January.

Allan Corduner (Motive and the Cue and films: Tár, Topsy-Turvy) stars with a live score performed by acclaimed cellist Gemma Rosefield.

Winter 1943, a forest in war-torn Eastern Europe: a poor woodcutter’s wife finds a little bundle thrown into the snow from a moving goods’ train. It contains something for which she has always yearned, but…

Told with a fairy tale-like lyricism, this gripping story of love and hope, set against the terrible backdrop of the Holocaust, reminds us that humanity can be found in the most inhumane of places.

Praise for the 2019 novella: “Magnificent…an admirable and terrible tale” (Libération) “A miracle of beauty, strength and simplicity.. An instant classic” (Le Canard Enchaîné) “A fairy tale you’ll never forget” (L’Express)
