Seventy-five years on from the first arrival of the Kindertransport in Britain, the concourses and platforms of stations across the country will burst into life with Suitcase, an original mix of site-specific promenade theatre and music which marks those arrivals. Suitcase reflects the stories of those who were there.
Join us as we take you on a journey through one of ten stations across Britain where you will stumble across 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.
