Save event
In 1828 a strange boy appears in a town square in Nuremberg holding a note claiming to have been held in a darkened room for 17 years. But who was he really? Conman? Orphan? Or an abducted prince caught in the middle of a political game? 
You are invited to the court of Nuremberg to witness key testimonies from those who know him best, hear the conspiracies and rumours that surround him, and watch Kaspar try to uncover the facts.
"It is our task to uncover the crime...blood is on the wall.... we must discover the villain." 
This is the enigmatic true story of Kaspar Hauser, a person who lived with learning difficulties. The story confronts how as a society, and as individuals, we care for those most vulnerable.
