"The exceptional ensemble combines exquisite, highly physical acting and wonderfully integrated live music."
— The Daily Telegraph
Agata is 6 years-old and is going to the railway station with her father. Everyone seems very happy, only Agata has the strange feeling that she will never see her father again. On the train, overcome with tiredness and hunger, she absent-mindedly chews on the paper name-tag tied around her neck…
… and very slowly consumes her name and address, and erases any chance of returning back home again. Drawing on true stories and accounts of the Kindertransport, NIE shines a light onto some of Europe’s darkest history and emerges with a story of survival, love and hope. Nicholas Winton was the main initiator of the transports saving children before the second world war broke out.
Suitable for ages 14+
