A wonderful new musical adaptation of E. Nesbit’s classic story by Stephen Kingsbury and Ben Sleep
Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis move with their mother from London to “The Three Chimneys”, a house near the railway in Yorkshire, after their father, who works at the Foreign Office, is imprisoned after being falsely accused of spying. They befriend an Old Gentleman who regularly takes the 9:15 train near their home and take care of a Russian exile, Mr Szczepansky, who is looking for his family and Jim, the grandson of the Old Gentleman, who suffers a broken leg in a tunnel.
This new production captures all the excitement and emotion of Edith Nesbit’s subtle critique of the English class system and aims to bring the delights of this literary classic to yet another generation.
Don’t miss your chance to join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis on the adventure of a lifetime as they tell the story of how they became The Railway Children.
