Putting the play in context and bringing it to life!
A whole day (10am-2.30pm) seminar for up to 60 students.
We are delighted to invite schools to join our GCSE seminar for students studying Diane Samuels' play ‘Kindertransport’. The seminar will enable students to put the play into both a historical and theatrical context. This can be challenging for students and teachers as there is no available interpretation of this text.
During the seminar the students will:
• Participate in handling sessions and a gallery tour to explore the key themes of the play and to place Eva/Evelyn's story into a historical context
• Hear personal testimony from a person who was rescued on the Kindertransport
• Discover more about the characters through exploring objects from the Museum's collection and props from a recent production
• Observe and model extracts from the play with direction from the playwright
• Pose questions to a plenary panel to include the playwright, a Jewish Museum educator and a Kindertransport refugee
The cost for this workshop is £10 plus VAT per student. For more information and booking contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
