12:55 PM

THE THIEF LORD, playwright James DeVita's adaptation of Cornelia Funke's award-winning novel, makes its world premiere at First Stage, starting this Friday, January 22!

In this amazing tale of adventure and intrigue. Orphans Prosper and Bo flee to Venice, joining a group of children led by the mysterious "Thief Lord." The boys are thrust into circumstances that will lead them to a fantastic, spellbinding conclusion.

"From the boys' arrival in Venice to the amazing twists and turns of the plot as the play builds to its conclusion, there is a tremendous sense of mystery, magic and intrigue," said Director Jeff Frank. "...what better place to set such a tale than the maze-like city of wonder - Venice," continues Frank.
