Kindertransport

Kindertransport

Tower Theatre Company presents 'Kindertransport', a play by Diane Samuels, directed by Angharad Ormond.

Diane Samuels' play is a modern classic about one woman's struggle to come to terms with her past.

Brutally separated from her German Jewish parents and brought to England with the promise of a new life, nine-year-old Eva ends up in Manchester. When Eva's parents fail to escape Germany, the child changes her name and begins the process of denial of her roots. It is only when her own daughter discovers some letters in their attic that Eva is forced to confront the truth about the past.

Reviews:
"Samuels has written the best play about the pain and passion of mother/daughter relationships."
Lynn Gardner, The Guardian
"... an extraordinarily skilful and compassionate piece which hauntingly juxtaposes past and present to show the effects of the Holocaust on one family through three generations ..."
Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph
