The Mischling

Congratulations to Louise Garcia who wrote, produced and directed the all singing, all dancing, all acting ‘The Mischling’, a musical play inspired by Leisl Munden and centred round a young girl living in Germany in 1938 whose father arranges for her to leave Germany on the Kindertransport.

I saw the final performance of the World premiere of the play on Wednesday 27th June at The Burrell Theatre in Truro (Truro School) and was really moved at the wonderful performances of children whose ages ranged from 6 up to 15. The play, the music, the singing and the dancing were all fantastic and there is talk of Louise taking the production up to Leeds (with her Head Teacher’s backing) for the Jewish festival at some time in the future.

I hope that in due course we will be able to show some of the photos from the production either here on the website or in the newsletter.
