This play won the German Children's Theatre Prize 2010 and has had eight productions in Germany and one here. Nivelli's War: about a six year old German Evacuee and his journey home at the end of WW2. Pirates: about a boy at sea, the play is on the surface a rollicking pirate tale and can be enjoyed as a fantasy adventure - but it is also a story about a child's emotional journey as he sails the tempestuous seas of his parents' separation.

This was nominated both for the Writer's Guild Best Children's Play and a Helen Hayes Award in America for Outstanding new play.

Winner of the American Alliance for Theatre and Education 'Distinguished Play' Award 2012.
