British playwright Diane Samuels wrote Kindertransport in 1993 will certainly have resonance for today’s audiences, which is likely why Ensemble Theatre chose it to be part of its current season.
The play deals with a dark time in history, World War II, when the titular rescue mission was organized to take Jewish children out of various European mainland countries and resettle them with families in Great Britain, separating them from their parents, in some cases forever. The play focuses on one such case and its tragic impact.
Ensemble Theatre is presenting it in its Cleveland premiere, featuring among the cast two of Cleveland’s legendary actresses, Dorothy Silver and Laura Perotta. Katia Schwartz directs.
It runs in the MainStage Theatre on Fridays and Saturdays @ 8pm and Subday @ 2pm through Sun 3/29. Tickets are $29.
