Kindertransport – the deeply moving and timely modern classic – celebrates 25 years since the play was written by acclaimed playwright Diane Samuels in 2018 with an anniversary tour visiting the Opera House Manchester from 1 – 5 May 2018.
2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport, which saw thousands of Jewish children ferried from Austria and Germany to safety.
Set in Hamburg in 1938: nine year-old Eva is forced onto a train by her desperate mother in order to escape the threat of World War II. Arriving at Liverpool Street Station, tagged like a piece of luggage, she’s handed over to strangers.
Manchester 1980: Evelyn, a proud mum, prepares to say goodbye to daughter Faith as she leaves the family home. But what Faith finds in the attic will change her life forever…
This heart-warming play is from the producers of last year’s acclaimed revival of The Crucible. Kindertransport will be directed by Anne Simon and designed by Marie-Luce Theis with lighting design by Nic Farman and sound design by Adrienne Quartly.
