Item Description
'The Evacuees' is a
television play written by one of Britain's most talented and
experienced playwrights and screenwriters, the late Jack Rosenthal
(he won a BAFTA award for 'The Evacuees'); the play is based on his
wartime experiences with other Jewish boy evacuees from Manchester.
It is a beautifully affecting tale without the slightest hint of
schmaltz: sometimes funny, sometimes sad particularly and
poignantly if one considers the fate of these boys in the event of
a Nazi victory over Britain, which at the time of the play's
setting was still being contested) this is really evocative and
enthralling t.v. drama
