logo-greyDorking Halls screens York Theatre Royal’s Olivier award-winning production of the imaginative stage adaptation The Railway Children on Monday 28 March.

E. Nesbit’s The Railway Children follows the story of Roberta (Bobbie), Phyllis and Peter, three sheltered siblings who suffer a huge upheaval when their father, who works for the Foreign Office, is taken away from their London home and falsely imprisoned. The children and their mother, now penniless, are forced to move from London to rural Yorkshire near a railway line. The story deals with themes of justice, the importance of family and the kindness of strangers.

The production is directed for the screen by International Emmy award-winning Ross MacGibbon (The Importance of Being Earnest with David Suchet, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake). The filmed event from the National Railway Museum in Yorkshire features the original locomotive from the much-loved 1970 film.

Tickets cost £17 full price and £12 for children. A family ticket (for four) costs £50.
