KindertransportA beautiful and moving play about nine year old Eva, a Jewish child rescued from Nazi Germany, showing the effects on her actual and adoptive parents as she changes her name and begins to deny her roots.
Last year marked the 75th anniversary of the evacuation of almost 10,000 Jewish Children from Nazi Europe to Britain prior to the outbreak of World War II, known as Kindertransport. This timely story of love, loss and hope stars popular TV and stage actresses Paula Wilcox and Janet Dibley.
