Kinder is best suited to ages 9+.

Escaping on a Kindertransport train, one small Czech-Jewish girl embarks on a mighty adventure. 

Crossing between the past and present, Babi travels across Europe; from bon bons in Germany to the smell of the sea in Margate, she discovers how tiny acts of kindness can change the course of a person’s life. 

Joyful, moving and poignant, Kinder features beautiful table top puppetry and cinematic shadow play, as Babi tries to assemble the parts of her broken identity, to find peace in her future. 

Kinder is a multi-award winning, from puppetry and visual theatre company Smoking Apples. Inviting you to take a seat inside an immersive set, the story unfolds through a series of playful hatches and openings. 

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and Enterprise Arts Trust.
