    It is uite different on so many levels reading a play rather than reading a book The underlying sadness of this play comes through in the dialogue that is wonderful of course an achievement Even without watching the play or feeling a connection to the cast I know I am not alone in feeling and thinking that all plays from Shakespeare to Pinter and everything past and future are meant to be performed not flat dialogue on a page which can't create the power of performanceThis is uite to my surprise a short play I also can't help feeling rightly or wrongly probably wrongly the subject could have been tackled a myriad of ways It felt a little disappointingand not the story perhaps given the title I was expecting It felt about survivor 's guilt than the story of The Kindertransport But that is to do with my response to the play than the play itselfThe facts and background that introduces the play was profoundly moving and thought provoking Perhaps I need to reserve my opinion of the play until I have seen the productionI was asked after joining my local theatre press team to write a preview for the theatre's newspaper for the play which is currently in rehearsal I haven't yet seen a rehearsal but I will sit in on several and speak to the cast and director before writing the preview I also have tickets and will be taking my grand daughters I have read a lot of books about the holocaust but the theme or themes in this play are a new way of looking for me and will be thought provoking For now just to say that though a short read it's left me slightly reeling But as always it's the younger and next generations who will make sense of the past Thank goodness for the addition of the character of Faith to make sense of heritage and history Maybe it could have gone on longer it leaves many unanswereduestions but it left me with a sense of past and future so in that regard worked well In the light of recent current events in British politics and current cultureit's a timely reminder and a great play to be performed right now again The message doesn't dim or date It will also I feel as a play albeit short have something important to say to future generations

    I saw this play several years ago and utterly loved it Today I reread the script and was struck again by how poignantly Samuels writes about a child being separated from her parents The beauty of this play is that the conseuences of the forced separation though it was done through love can be seen in multiple generations This plays asks uestions that are well worth asking and it does so with wonderfully written characters that reach out and grab your heartstrings

    Bought on the second hand option was already full of notes which I like as you can use them to add to your own notes for revision if you have missed any points throughout the book Only issue was the book was practically falling apart and pages kept coming loose This was advertised like new which it most definitely wasn't Did the job though so can't complain Good value great book

    I read this very powerful play as a member of a uaker group involved in planning events to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War One in 2014 highlighting the role of conscientious objectors in both WW1 and WW2 We hope to encourage a local secondary school to put on a production of this thought provoking play which deals with complex issues of identity and abandonment in an appropriately nuanced way There are no heroes only victims which is a fitting message to draw about any war

    Good to see new plays arriving on the circuit and actually being performed to full houses Background interview and writing process sections answer many uestions and clarify a lot of what I suspected in the story line but which dramatically is never explicit
