The play celebrates the true story of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, who disobeyed his government and issued around 30,000 transit visas to refugees seeking to escape the Nazis. Aristides de Sousa Mendes’ humanitarian and selfless actions represent the most significant life saving effort undertaken by one individual during WWII. Posthumously, his altruism has been recognised world wide but in Britain his story remains largely unknown.
The production has received support from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
Alice de Sousa and the Galleon Theatre Company have presented a number of Portuguese plays in the Greenwhich Playhouse, including Inês de Castro and Primo Basilio.
“Under artistic director Alice de Sousa, the Greenwich Playhouse is surely London’s leading exponent of Portuguese culture” – Time Out
