Redlynch Players are proud to announce that they will be performing The Titfield Thunderbolt by Philip Goulding as their spring 2023 production. This fun packed play is based on the classic Ealing comedy of the same name by T E B Clarke.

The Titfield to Mallingford line is losing money and British Rail have announced its imminent closure. In desperation, the villagers, led by Lady Edna Chesterford and vicar, Sam Weech, decide to take charge and run it themselves – with a train resurrected from a local museum! As well as convincing the railway authorities that they are competent to work the line, they have to face problems from local chancer Vernon Crump, who is set on providing a competitive bus service.

Redlynch Players will be performing at Redlynch Village Hall from Wednesday 24 May to Saturday 27 May 2023 (7:30pm each evening).
