A brand new adaptation of Edith Nesbit’s classic tale The Railway Children begins a five-night broken run at The Grand Theatre in Lancaster tomorrow night.
The production, adapted by Dave Simpson, will be at the theatre tomorrow, Sunday and next Saturday (July 11) from 2.30pm. There will be evening shows next Thursday and Friday (July 9 and 10) from 7.30pm.
Three children and their mother are uprooted from their London home to live in the countryside. The children’s lives centre around the local railway station where new friends and adventure beckon.
Originally serialised in The London Magazine in 1905 and published as a book in 1906, it has been adapted for the screen several times, of which the 1970 film version is best known.
