The Railway Children chugs into The Epstein Theatre

If you’re looking for an entertaining family show, then The Epstein Theatre has just the ticket!

This autumn, Starbright Entertainments are proud to present a brand new adaptation of The Railway Children, which steams into The Epstein on Tuesday October 25 until Wednesday October 26. E Nesbit’s well-loved tale is brought to life in this new adaptation by Woolford and John.

Roberta, Peter and Phyllis live in a comfortable house in London until their father is falsely accused of selling state secrets and is imprisoned for five years.

The family have to leave their home and move to a quiet little cottage next to a railway in Yorkshire. They quickly make friends with the Station Master, Mr Perks, and an old gentleman who waves every day from his carriage on the 9.15 to London. Could their unlikely friendship be the key to the release of their father?

The story is told from the memory of Mr Perks and is a really immersive production with a cast of just six. A beautiful blend of storytelling, drama, comedy and musical theatre, this really is the perfect way to make literature come alive for all the family!

Epstein Theatre General Manager Rebekah Pichilingi commented:

“We are really chuffed to present this family show which is simply first class, so make sure you come on board and book your tickets fast as we’re sure it will be a runaway success!”
