Background


Queen's Theatre Hornchurch and Les Theatres de la Ville de Luxembourg in association with Selladoor Productions present Kindertransport by Diane Samuels.


This heart-warming production is from the producers of last year's acclaimed revival of The Crucible.

Diane Samuels wrote this extraordinary and haunting play 25 years ago.
