CURRENT SHOW |KINDERTRANSPORT
Presented by the Tower Theatre Company

Tuesdays – Saturdays 7.30pm

By Diane Samuels
Directed by Angharad Ormond
Following a successful run earlier in the year Tower Theatre Company’s production of Kindertransport is transferring to Upstairs at the Gatehouse.
Set against the backdrop of the holocaust and the transportation of thousands of Jewish children, Kindertransport deals with the fragile but resilient bond between mothers and daughters. Diane Samuels’ play about one woman’s struggle to come to terms with her past is a modern classic exploring separation, attachment and identity.

Two woman…united in bravery
In 1949 two of the most famous women in Britain met in a fashionable Mayfair beauty salon. One was the film star Anna Neagle and the other was the wartime heroine Odette. Under the gentle hands of their young beautician they were to reveal the explosive secrets that neither the press nor the Gestapo ever discovered.

From the producer who brought you BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO comes 9 To 5 The Musical, based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.
Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss.
