Was Trump Inspired by the Kindertransport?

Is it ever okay to separate a child from their parents? Fingers Crossed Theatre Company explore the effect of separation and immigration on a person’s identity, in their devised play ‘Central (Story) Line’. Three Jewish children arrive in London on the Kindertransport, fleeing from the Nazis. They find themselves at Liverpool Street Station – with no one there to pick them up. This show combines pop culture (Elvis, The Doors, Abba, Britney) with political speeches to explore how these children develop through the decades. How does it feel to be an immigrant in a fast-changing world, and what effect does that initial separation have? Touching on universal topics from love, to loss, to fitting in, this show combines humour with poignance and some classic songs – oh, and it’s also entirely set on the tube!
