Numbers from Prague by Tom Penn

 

As part of Holocaust Memorial Day week, we are producing a specially-commissioned play on the theme of Sir Nicholas Winton and the Kindertransport. The play was inspired by the visit to HMD in 2009 of Sir Nicholas, known as 'The English Schindler'. It was also inspired by the talk given by Miss Ann Chadwick whose family offered a home to a Kindertransport girl, Suzie. The moving play will feature youngsters from the Keystage youth theatre and will be directed by Lesley Ford.

 

Supported by the European Association for Jewish Culture and the Zangwill Foundation, this world premiere of the play will take place on the 29th January, 2011, 7:30pm at The Junction Theatre, Cambridge.

The City WeepsThe City Weeps

London premiere of: The Baghdad Monologue by Alejandro Viñao and Lonely Sits the City by Andrew Lovett.

The two mini-operas encapsulate the harsh reality of conflict, and highlight not only the ability of humanity both to survive invasion and devastation but also to inflict the same wounds across generations and peoples.

Performed by Frances M Lynch and electric voice theatre (evt) at the Riverside Studios as part of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival.

Commissioned by evt with support from ACE, Britten-Pears Foundation and the European Association for Jewish Culture.
