The Algarveans theatre group will be staging Kindertransport by Diane Samuels at Lagoa Auditorium this November.
This touching, moving and amusing play is set in the attic of a suburban London house in the 1980s. Evelyn, a brusque middle-aged housewife, and her daughter Faith, are sorting through their cardboard boxes and old possessions. Theirs is a strained relationship, which unfolds as the show progresses, and the air is charged with animosity and misunderstanding.
At the same time, in a series of flashbacks, we follow the progress of Eva, a frightened 9-year-old Jewish girl. Tagged like a piece of luggage, she leaves her mother in Hamburg and travels to England, where the well-meaning Lil takes over her upbringing. Little by little, the distraught child grows into a reserved young woman. Her accent fades and, so you might believe, do past traumas.
It will not take long for the audience to figure out that the two parts of the play are really halves of the same story.
