Kindertransport

Written by Diane Samuels

Barely a month after Kristallnacht The Night of Broken Glass, when the Nazi persecution of the Jews started in earnest the Kindertransports began. During the next nine months, 10,000 Jewish children between the ages of five and seventeen were evacuated from their native Germany and came to settle in England. They left behind their homes, family, posses-sions, language, culture and identity. They survived, but at a cost. Kindertransport follows 9 year-old Eva as she leaves Germany for England, disavows her heritage and grows into the 50 year-old Evelyn. It is a play about separation, dislocation, rejection and remembrance, a beautifully written piece, poignant without being morbid and ultimately cathartic.

Opening Night: Friday, January 11, 2002 - Closing Night: Saturday, January 26, 2002
