TheRailwayChildrenRGBThe Railway Children

by E Nesbit adapted by Mike Kenny

28 November to 7 December 2019

Mike Kenny’s imaginative adaptation was first staged at the National Railway Museum in York, and then at London Waterloo. Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis have their affluent Edwardian lives turned upside down when their father is accused of espionage and taken away by police and dwindling finances force the family to move to a rural village in the North of England. After the initial culture shock, they soon befriend the locals. But with little money and nothing to do, the children spend their days waving at trains bound for London to “send their love to Father”. When a kindly old gentleman waves back, their fortunes begin to change...
