Diane Samuels’ play about families, secrets and survival takes us to the days of the impending Holocaust. As conditions deteriorated in Germany in the 1930s, many tried in vain to escape. But thanks to a British humanitarian effort, about 10,000 Jewish children from Germany and neighboring countries were relocated to live with families in the United Kingdom, while their parents stayed behind. This passage to freedom became known as 'Kindertransport'.

Original sound and scoring by Peter Salem.

Includes a conversation with Kindertransport survivor, Hilda Fogelson.

An Enemy of the People

By: Henrik Ibsen, adapted by Rebecca Lenkewicz
Directed by: Martin Jarvis
Starring: Richard Kind, Gregory Harrison, Emily Swallow, Josh Stamberg

When a small town relies on tourists flocking to its baths, will a report of dangerously polluted waters be enough to shut them down? Henrik Ibsen weighs the cost of public health versus a town's livelihood and skewers the complicity of the masses in his classic and still timely play. An Enemy of the People is part of L.A. Theatre Works' Relativity Series of science-themed plays. Lead funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.
