The 7:00p performance in Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse is presented in partnership with Purdue Convocations and the Greater Lafayette Holocaust Remembrances Committee. The performance includes a post-show discussion with cast members.

Based on the autobiography written by Anne Lehman Fox, the play chronicles her escape from Nazi Germany in 1938 on the Kindertransport, a rescue mission that led nearly 10,000 Jewish children to safety throughout the British Isles. It is recommended for children in grades 4-8.

Tickets are $14 for the general public and $10 for those 18 years and younger, Purdue students and Ivy Tech Lafayette students. Tickets are available at the Elliott Hall and Stewart Center box offices at 765-494-3933 or 800-914-SHOW. Tickets are also available through Ticketmaster outlets.
