    Bobby (Roberta), Phyllis, and Peter lead us back in time to the year they were the Railway Children. When father mysteriously is called away and the family has to move from their mansion to a small cottage in the country, the children call upon their kind hearts and vivid imaginations to entertain them while mother is busy. They make friends with Perks, the Porter at the railway, and the Old Gentleman who waves from the 9:15 train every day. These three children save the day many a time, diverting trains from disaster, taking in Russian writers, and ultimately rescuing their father from his unjust imprisonment.

    “Mike Kenny has given the story excitement and imagination, and kept it anchored in the real world. His wit has appealing irony and the twee barometer barely registers. These Railway Children are on a journey of self-discovery.”The Stage, UK

    “Mike Kenny’s new adaptation banishes the whiff of tea-time serializations and reveals Nesbit’s book as a radical work of profound, even Shavian moral purpose.” – Guardian, UK (5 Star Review)
