by E. Nesbit
Adapted by Dave Simpson
This amateur production of ‘The Railway Children (Play)’ is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
Peter and his two sisters, Phyllis and Roberta (Bobbie), are growing up in a comfortable middle-class home in Edwardian London when their father is suddenly taken away by two strangers and their lives change overnight. With no regular income, their mother is forced to move to a small country cottage, and the children are left to their own devices while she concentrates on writing books to support the family. But with their poverty comes more freedom than they have ever known before, and the railway line at the bottom of their garden offers the trio new friendships that will change their lives forever.
This stage adaptation of Edith Nesbit’s classic story captures the anxieties and exhilarations of childhood with tenderness and insight. Audiences join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis on the adventure of a lifetime as they become ‘The Railway Children’.
