As the clouds of war gather in 1930’s Germany, a desperate mother forces her nine year old daughter onto a train, sending her out of danger and into the arms of strangers.
In peaceful, suburban, 1980’s England, a proud mother prepares to say farewell to her grown-up daughter, as she cuts the ties of childhood to leave the family home.
Then a chance discovery opens an unhealed wound.
"When we first read Diane Samuels’ Kindertransport play, both of us were deeply moved, astonished and thrilled. We knew immediately that we wanted to do this play. The combination of extraordinary insight into the complexity of the relationship between mothers and daughters, the imaginative theatricality of the conceit of the piece and the raw power of the emotional revelations that are unleashed on the audience is a challenging, engaging and intoxicating mixture.
We are delighted that audiences and reviewers alike are experiencing the same response to Kindertransport."
