The Railway Children by E. Nesbit

RC Final poster 2.jpg

Presented by Next Stage Theatre Company and Next Stage Youth

Tuesday 30th October - Saturday 3rd November at 7.30pm with a matinee at 2pm on Saturday 3rd

A father in prison, a grieving mother, their three young children uprooted from London and living far away in a small village in straightened circumstances - surely this is the subject matter of a gloomy story?

But no, The Railway Children is a joyous exploration of love, loyalty, young optimism, fun and friendship set in the bucolic countryside of Edwardian Britain. E.Nesbit’s delightful story has captured the hearts of generations of young - and old - readers, now comealong and see for yourself why this children’s classicis a must-see.

Given the very special Next Stage treatment the play is performed by talented members of Next Stage’s adult and youth theatre companies and features Caroline Groom as Mother, Richard Matthews as Perks and Lily Stiles as Roberta.

We anticipate this will be a sell-out show, don’t leave it too late to book your tickets!

This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with NICK HERN BOOKS.
