The author’s guide to Kindertransport, an invaluable and uniquely authoritative resource for anyone studying, teaching or performing the play. First staged by the Soho Theatre Company in London in 1993, Diane Samuels’ Kindertransport has enjoyed huge success around the world and is widely studied in colleges. The play tells the story of nine-year-old Eva, a German Jewish girl, sent by her parents on the Kindertransport to start a new life with a foster family in Britain just before the outbreak of World War Two. Years later, she has changed her name to Evelyn and denied her roots.
