York England – York Theatre Royal will be working with the National Railway Museum to bring back their acclaimed production of The Railway Children for summer 2015. The Railway Children enjoyed sell out runs in York in 2008 and 2009 and then played in London’s Waterloo Station and in Toronto. The play, directed by Damian Cruden opened in December at a new venue in Kings Cross, London and will return to its original home at the National Railway Museum at the end of July 2015. The Railway Children tells the story of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis, three children whose lives change dramatically when their father is mysteriously taken away. They move from London to a cottage in rural Yorkshire with their mother, where they befriend the local railway porter, Perks, and embark on a magical journey of discovery, friendship and adventure. But the mystery remains – where is Father, and is he ever coming back?
The Railway Children return to York
31 July – 5 September 2015
