I am currently acting in this play, playing Evelyn, and decided I'd buy my own copy of the book because I'd heard the notes at the beginning (which we weren't given) were extremely useful. Since then, it has travelled everywhere, including a Christmas Dinner Party! The forward my Samuels and the real Kindertransport experience stories at the front of the book are interesting and prove extremely useful to actors, trying to perform the difficult production. The play itself is beautiful and worth reading. It is a moving piece set in two different time periods, studying the effects of the horrors of the war and human relationships, amongst other touching and difficult topics. It is a joyful read. Having read other reviews about the pages falling out... it hasn't happened to my copy nor my directors tatty and very well-annotated copy!
