    The Railway Children

    "Daddy!! Oh, my Daddy!"

    Who can resist that timeless line?

    Bishopstoke Players' next production is that much-loved family classic, The Railway Children.

    It's an extra special one for Bishopstoke Players as this is the show closest to their 75th anniversary. Yes, that's right, Bishopstoke Players have been treading the boards of Bishopstoke and beyond, and supporting Action for Children, since 1947!

    Since The Railway Children was published in 1906, Edith Nesbit's novel has become a classic which has been read and loved by successive generations of children the world over, as well as delighting cinema and TV audiences. Now its appeal is widened still further with Dave Simpson's adventurous yet sensitive stage adaptation of the original novel.

    Set in and around a country railway station at the turn of the last century, the plight of the Railway Children grappling with their new environment is imaginatively brought to life for a modern audience, whilst losing nothing of the original spirit of humour, adventure and the final triumph of good over evil.

    Tickets: £10 (Under 18s: £8); Available via phone (07871 006551), email or online (no booking fee).

    Proceeds are donated annually to Action for Children.
