Overview

E. Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children is brought thrillingly to life in a stunning new stage production.

This best-loved tale, made famous by the iconic 1970 movie starring Jenny Agutter and Bernard Cribbins, delivers a thrilling coming of age story and a fascinating insight into Edwardian rural life.

When their father mysteriously disappears with two strangers one evening, the lives of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis are turned upside down. Forced to leave the comforts of their privileged London life in exchange for a simple rural existence, this fractured family soon discover new friendships that will change their lives forever.

Complete with beautiful period costumes, digital projections and ingenious designs, this new production promises an uplifting theatrical experience for all ages, packed with intrigue and adventure.
