Kindertransport by Diane Samuels

The company's third production of 2009 is 'Kindertransport' by Diane Samuels.

One of a series of plays especially chosen in the company’s 15th birthday year to enable some of the many talented youngsters who are part of Next Stage‘s Youth Theatre to collaborate with the adult company.

This insightful account of how one family is affected by the Holocaust and how the subsequent generations have fared, has talented young actress Anna Fleur Rawlinson joining a strong Next Stage cast lead by Joanna Bowman.

A powerful play about the pain and passion of mother/daughter relationships and the consequences of the denial of ones roots.

During production rehearsals Vernon Saunders came in to the Theatre especially to talk to us all about his memories and experiences. Vernon Saunders, as Werner Schwarz, escaped from Berlin in the first of the Kindertransport and was brought to Bath 70 years ago.
