Acress Suzan Sylvester is returning to Diane Samuels' play Kindertransport in the role of mother Evelyn having performed as daughter Faith in the 1993 premiere production.
She will be joined by a cast of actors from across Europe in a tour to celebrate the play's 25th anniversary. It has become a modern classic since it was first written.
Kindertransport is co-produced by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg in association with Selladoor Productions. It marks 80 years since the Kindertransport, which saw thousands of Jewish children ferried from Austria and Germany to safety in the UK.
Kindertransport opens at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch from 8 – 24 March, plays at Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg from 27 – 31 March and then embarks on a UK tour to the New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich (17 – 21 April), Richmond Theatre (24 – 28 April) and Manchester Opera House (1 – 5 May).
