The Railway Children steams back to York

Date Posted: 19/02/2015

In summer, York Theatre Royal will bring the acclaimed production back to the National Railway Museum.

E. Nesbit’s classic story, The Railway Children, was first adapted for the stage by Mike Kenny in 2008.

After making its debut at York’s National Railway Museum, under the direction of Damian Cruden, the show went on to have critically acclaimed runs at London’s Waterloo Station and in Toronto.

At the end of 2014, the production took to a new purposely-built stage in London’s King’s Cross.

Between 31st July and 5th September, the show will return to its roots at the National Railway Museum.

York audiences will be able to watch, as the story of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis unfolds on a set that features a real rail track and locomotive.
