We are delighted to welcome nationally renowned Small Nose Productions and Trestle Theatre to our stage. In this unique collaboration, they weave together intricate full mask theatre with elements of clowning to share the incredibly moving story of Mrs Rachel Levy.

Mrs Rachel Levy is a survivor of Auschwitz Concentration Camp. She survived the Death March that took place when the the Nazis wanted Auschwitz emptied out as the Red Army and the allied war effort drew ever closer. Mrs Levy also survived the Bergen Belsen concentration camp, the worst camp attributed to a time when the Nazis had seemingly given up on trying to hide the horrors of The Holocaust. All hope was gone, but Rachel survived. Trestle’s Artistic Director Emily Gray said: “Rachel did not tell her story for 50 years, so it felt right to use full masks, which evoke what happened so well and highlight the poignancy of Rachel’s generous choice to now, in her 80s, pass her story on, so that younger generations can understand the horrors of the Holocaust.”

This play is suitable for children 10+ and adults.

Workshops with Small Nose and Trestle will take place during the day for schools and colleges. Please enquire with Strode Theatre for further details.
