Capturing the pain and passion in the heart


In the year of the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the first Kindertransport into England, the award-winning play of the same name captures the pain and passion at the heart of every parent/child relationship. This stunning new production visits Theatre Royal Brighton from Monday 18 – Sat 23 November as part of a limited UK tour.

As the clouds of war gather in 1930s Germany, a desperate mother forces her nine year old daughter Eva onto a train, sending her out of danger and into the arms of strangers.

In peaceful, suburban 1980s England, a proud mother prepares to say farewell to her grown-up daughter Faith as she cuts the ties of childhood to leave the family home. Then a chance discovery opens an unhealed wound and a long buried secret is revealed. The bittersweet experience of every parent as they send their children into an uncertain world, unites these women across the decades.

Starring Paula Wilcox (The Smoking Room, Rock and Chips, Emmerdale) and Janet Dibley (Doctors, EastEnders, the Two of Us) this is a timely and unmissable story of love and loss, past and present and hope for the future.
