Starring Janet Dibley (Doctors, EastEnders, The Two of Us) and Paula Wilcox (Man About The House, Rock and Chips, Emmerdale).

In Germany in 1938, as the clouds of war gather, a desperate mother forces her nine year old daughter onto a train, sending Eva out of danger and into the arms of strangers. In England, decades later, another mother reluctantly prepares for the departure of her grown-up daughter, as Faith cuts the ties of childhood.

Then a chance discovery opens an unhealed wound and a long-buried secret is revealed.

The bittersweet experience of every parent as they try to teach their child to survive alone unites these women across the decades.

In the nine months before the outbreak of World War II, the Kindertransport rescued almost 10,000, mainly Jewish children from Germany and Austria and ferried them to safety. In the year that marks the 75th anniversary of the Kindertransport, this is a timely and unmissable production of this award-winning play. Deeply moving and critically acclaimed, this modern classic is now central to many school curricula.
