Lenutza – The Musical

Lenutza – The Musical

Written by Hazel and Andy Hiles with additional music by Simon Lesley

Performed by Year 8 students from Hall Grove School

A modern day ‘Oliver’ that sensitively touches on the subject of human trafficking!

At the age of five, Lenutza is left at a Romanian orphanage by her mother. Her family are desperately poor and this sad measure is the only option to ensure that Lenutza and her siblings might survive.

Lenutza is a strong willed and feisty child.  After a particularly nasty beating from an orphanage worker, she decides to run away. Her best friend, Ana is too afraid to go with her. Nicu, a teenage boy travelling with a group of gypsies discovers Lenutza in the hills and persuades her to join his group. She becomes like a sister to him. As work gets harder to come by the hard labour takes its toll on the young girl. Nici is tragically killed and Lenutza finds herself in an increasingly dangerous situation as she is trafficked from country to country with no papers. Vali, the gypsy leader, grows more and more unreasonable and menacing!

Written in a Romanian folk style, the music captures the colour, vibrancy and gritty earthiness of gypsy dance and culture.

This exciting, thought provoking and cutting-edge multimedia musical is told through the eyes of Lenutza and her best friend, Ana.
