Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children is brought thrillingly to life in a stunning new stage production.

This best-loved tale, made famous by the iconic 1970 movie starring Jenny Agutter and Bernard Cribbins, delivers a compelling coming of age story and a fascinating insight into Edwardian rural life.

When their father mysteriously disappears with two strangers one evening, the lives of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis are turned upside down. Forced to leave the comforts of their privileged London life in exchange for a simple existence in the depths of the Yorkshire countryside, this fractured family soon discover new friendships and an unexpected secret that will change their lives forever. Complete with beautiful period costumes and ingenious designs, this new production promises an uplifting theatrical experience for all ages, packed with intrigue, adventure, joy and jubilation.

The performance on Saturday 24th June at 2:00pm will be audio described by trained audio describer Guy Newman. Guy worked for several years in London theatres before moving to Devon. Prior to the performance Guy will be running a touch tour at 1:00pm.
