There have been many mother-daughter combinations in Hollywood block-busters.

Just two examples are Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, and Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson.

Now Stamford Shoestring offers a similar pairing in its next production Kindertransport at the Arts Centre from June 5 to 9.

In this gripping story, Chiara Todisco, 13, plays Eva, a young Jewish girl rescued from the Nazis in 1938 and sent by train to a new life and foster home in England.

Her mother, Helga, played by Chiara's mother Estella, is unable to escape from Germany and hopes of being re-united with Eva are thwarted.

Kindertransport is a deeply moving play and is a must watch.

It will strike a powerful chord with any parents who have watched their children grow up and leave home, as well as recognising that, 80 years on from the start of the holocaust, refugees around the world are still seeking to escape the horrors of war.
