Kindertransport, written by Diane Samuels, pulls into Richmond Theatre during its 25th-anniversary tour of the UK.

Kindertransport will be coming to Richmond Theatre from April 24 where it will run through until April 28, it has been announced today.

The play, written by Diane Samuels, is celebrating its 25th anniversary with the UK tour also marking 80 years since the Kindertransport rescue effort, a critical moment during World War II which saw thousands of Jewish children ferried from Austria and Germany to safety in the UK.

Suzan Sylvester, who performed as daughter Faith in the original 1993 premiere production of Kindertransport, will take on the role of mother Evelyn. Sylvester’s recent stage credits include Crystal Springs at Park Theatre, Crooked at Bush Theatre, and Broken Glass at the Tricycle.

The ensemble cast, made of up actors from across Europe, also includes Hannah Bristow as Faith, Leila Schaus as Eva, Catherine Janke as Helga, Jenny Lee as Lil, and Matthew Brown as the Ratcatcher.

Kindertransport, co-produced by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg in association with Selladoor Productions, is a timely classic that focuses on one woman’s struggle to come to terms with her past.

Anne Simon will direct the production, brought to life by the producers behind this year’s acclaimed revival of The Crucible. The production is designed by Marie-Luce Theis, with lighting design by Nic Farman and sound design by Adrienne Quartly.
