The Birmingham History Theatre Company presents –

The Lost Children

Part of Birminghamfest 2022 –
An extraordinary story of our Commonwealth links. Were the Middlemore Homes right to emigrate over 6000 children from Birmingham to Canada and Australia between the years 1873 and 1954? This controversial issue is explored in our musical play, based on a film being made of An Enquiry. Listen to what people thought about it when it started and how it developed: parents, adults who emigrated as children, officials, farmers, journalists, descendants, and John Middlemore himself. Featuring original music by Peter Churchill.
