This Is My Theatre presents an open air theatre production of The Railway Children on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 August.
When their father has to leave their London home unexpectedly, Roberta, Phyllis and Peter leave London and travel with their mother to start a new life in rural Yorkshire.
Their love of trains and the nearby railway line lead to new adventures but the mystery of why their father doesn’t return remains and they must find out and help him come home.
Whilst written more than a century ago, this charming children’s novel still inspires all ages and with folk music throughout, everyone will have their hearts warmed with this captivating adaptation.
Adapted for the stage by Sarah Slator.
