Last Train to Auschwitz, which has played at the Hanover Street venue in 2015 and 2017, 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 on stage by an incredible selection of Liverpool’s top acting talent including Brookside star Bernie Foley, who is best known for playing Margie Shadwick in the Channel 4 soap.
Bernie is no stranger to the stage having starred in several other Liverpool productions including Brick Up: The Wirral Strikes Back, as well as the 1996 television film Hillsborough.
Joining her on the stage are 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) Karen Oliver 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 previous visits to The Epstein Theatre and we are truly delighted to welcome it back for another run of shows this year. The cast is full of talented Liverpudlian actors and we can’t wait to welcome them back to the Epstein stage.”
