KINDERTRANSPORT

Written by Diane Samuels
Directed by Anne Simon
Designed by Marie-Luce Theis

Kindertransport – the deeply moving and timely modern classic – celebrates 25 years since

the play was written by acclaimed playwright Diane Samuels in 2018. Its anniversary tour will open at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch from 8th – 24th March 2018 before transferring to Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg from 27th – 31st March. This heart-warming production is brought to the stage by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg in association with Selladoor Productions. It will then embark on a limited 3-week tour across the UK, visiting New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich, Richmond Theatre and Manchester Opera House.

Hamburg 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…

2018 also marks the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport, which saw thousands of Jewish children ferried from Austria and Germany to safety.

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.

Don’t miss a limited chance to see the anniversary tour of this haunting play about a woman’s struggle to come to terms with her past. On sale now visit www.selladoor.co.uk for listing and tour information. Find us on twitter @KinderTourUK
