The touring theatre event ‘Suitcase’ will shortly be coming to Southampton.
‘Suitcase’ commemorates 75 years since the Kindertransports from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia. It is to be performed in railway stations from Scotland to Harwich and will be in Southampton on 27th November.
The production features scenes played out by bewildered refugee children, the waiting foster parents, Kindertransport organisers and bemused bystanders – as commuters hurrying to catch their trains are hijacked by history. A unique synthesis of memory and history, performance and place, ‘Suitcase’ is the place where the past and present collide.
