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

In peaceful, suburban, 1980’s England a proud mother prepares to say farewell to her grown-up daughter, as she cuts the ties of childhood to leave the family home.

Then a chance discovery opens an unhealed wound.

In the year that marks the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the last Kindertransport,  Maggie Steed (Stella, Jam and Jerusalem, Pie in the Sky) and Janet Dibley (Doctors, EastEnders, The Two of Us) star in this crtically acclaimed production of Diane Samuels’ award-winning classic.
