"But nothing this perfect lasts forever.
How can it?"
Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis and their mother are forced to move
from London to "Three Chimneys", a small house in the country near
the railway, after their father is imprisoned as a
result of being falsely accused of selling state secrets. The
become friendly with Perks, the station porter, and with the Old
Gentleman who regularly takes the 9:15 train. Danger and heroism are
just along the track!
Our show tells the thrilling and moving story of how
Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis became The Railway Children. It contains
all the excitement and emotion of Edith Nesbit's subtle critique of the
English class system, and aims to bring the delights of this literary
classic to yet another generation.
The 2016 tour produced by talkingScarlet has been
packing them in at theatres around the UK, including Windsor,
Cheltenham, Derry , Buxton, Gloucester, Blackpool, Eastbourne,

Performance from the Theatre Royal, Windsor, June 2016:

And so our little journey ends"
