Kindertransport is currently touring the UK with a new production and it will be arriving at The Churchill Theatre in Bromley from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th January 2014.
Written by Diane Samuels, Kindertransport stars Paula Wilcox, Janet Dibley, Emma Deegan, Paul Lancaster, Gabrielle Dempsey, and Rosie Holden. It is directed by Andrew Hall with design by Julit Shillingford, lighting by Matthew Eagland and music by Andrew Bugg.
The synopsis for the show is:
In Germany, in 1938, as the clouds of war thicken, a desperate mother forces her nine year old daughter Eva onto a train, sending her out of danger and into the arms of strangers.
In England, decades later, a reluctant mother prepares for the departure of her grown-up daughter, Faith, as she cuts the ties of childhood. Then a chance discovery opens an unhealed wound and a long-buried secret is revealed. The bittersweet experience of every parent as they try to teach their child to survive alone, unites these women across the decades.
In the nine months before the outbreak of World War II, the Kindertransport ferried nearly 10,000, mainly Jewish children from Germany and Austria to safety. Many would never see their parents again. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Kindertransport.
