Kindertransport play coming to UK train station

    Seventy-five years ago, train stations across the country filled with child refugees arriving from Nazi-occupied Europe, at the start of what became known as the Kindertransport.

    Now, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the rescue mission, which saved more than 9,500 children, a theatre company is touring station platforms and concourses across the UK, with a production portraying the experience of those children.

    Suitcase is an original theatre piece that fuses a site-specific promenade performance with live music. The audience watches and participates as bewildered Kindertransport children meet their foster parents for the first time.

    According to director Ros Merkin: “Suitcase marks moments and stories in what will be the last major anniversary for many of the Kinder.”

    The company will start its tour at Glasgow Central station on November 12 and finish at Liverpool Street Station in London in December.

    Tickets are free, but must be booked in advance via suitcase1938.org
