Just prior to the Second World War Britain took in over 10,000 Jewish refugee children from Europe. The rescue effort was known as Kindertransport. Separated from their families and fostered out to British homes, most of the children never saw their parents again.
Diane Samuel’s extraordinary play is about this forced immigration and its effect on generations. Based on real accounts and told from the female perspective, Kindertransport tells a powerful story of survival centred on Eva and told across time.
From when Eva was child in Hamburg in 1938 to 40 years on, when she has a daughter of her own who wants to know the truth about Eva’s past.
Darlinghurst Theatre Company produces and presents the Australian professional premiere of Kindertransport.
With Annie Byron.
