Back by popular demand, Last Train to Auschwitz returns to The Epstein Theatre later this year for a run of shows from Thursday 21st until Sunday 24th September.
Last Train to Auschwitz tells the story of a group of women’s journey into hell. Their final destination is the notorious concentration camp Auschwitz.
The emotional narrative will be played out onstage by an incredible selection of Liverpool’s top acting talent including award winning film actress, star of Ladybird Ladybird and I.T.V.’s Benidorm, Crissy Rock.
Best known for playing Solana manageress Janey York in I.T.V.’s Benidorm and for her appearance in the 2011 series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, audiences may have also seen Crissy at The Epstein Theatre earlier this year in comedy musical Seriously Dead.
Joining her is Brookside actress Bernie Foley who played Margie Shadwick in the Channel 4 soap; Lesley Butler and Saul Murphey both of Red Skies and Maggie Lynch of Sunset Boulevard and The King and I. Completing the stellar cast is Lucy Gittens (If The Shoe Fits), Katie Rose (Walking In The Rain) and Hollie McGann.
Auschwitz, a place where dreams die first and nightmares become a reality. Every day is a fight for survival, but through all this, bonds of love and friendships are formed. No matter what colour or creed, from the movie star to the gypsy, they band together in their fight for survival despite their inhumane treatment by the prison guards.
In a world they no longer know or recognise, some will live to tell their story, others will perish in the ever-burning ovens of the gas chambers. The memory of those who perished will stay eternal in the pages of history and be passed down from generation to generation.
Last Train to Auschwitz will take audiences on a rollercoaster of emotions; a journey of love, hope, and friendship that can never be defeated when people unite, a journey that won’t be forgotten.
Theatre manager, Rebekah Pichilingi, said, “Last Train To Auschwitz received an incredible reception on its last visit to The Epstein Theatre and we are truly delighted to welcome it back for another run of shows this September. The cast is full of talented Liverpudlians and we can’t wait to welcome them back to the Epstein stage.”
