Suitcase 1938

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.

We interview Jane Merkin and Max Reinhardt to find out more about this project and also to get some insight into the music that JMI will be involved in helping to produce for the Gala performance on Sunday 1st December.


Playing tracks by Suitcase 1938, Joe Loss and Monte Ray, Vaughn Williams, The Andrews Sisters, The Barry Sisters and more.
