Since its first appearance in 1906, Edith Nesbit’s The Railway Children has become a classic which has been read and loved by successive generations of children the world over, as well as delighting cinema and TV audiences. Now its appeal is widened still further with this adventurous yet sensitive stage adaptation by Dave Simpson.
Set in and around a country railway station at the turn of the century, the plight of the Railway Children grappling with their new environment is imaginatively brought to life for a modern audience whilst losing nothing of the original spirit of humour, adventure and the final triumph of good over evil.
