The Railway Children

With a real steam train on stage near King’s Cross station, Mike Kenny’s adaptation of E Nesbit’s novel has thrilled children, parents and grandparents alike


“My seven year old James nearly self-combusted with excitement when the 60 tonne-steam engine chuffed on to the stage in a vision of smoke, steel, green paint and polished brass at the specially made theatre for Mike Kenny’s adaption of†The Railway Childrenat King’s Cross station. Looking round the railway station auditorium I could see delighted grandparents on their birthday treat and dads with a tear in their eye along side the many super-excited children. I was waiting for the part of the story that I knew would give me a lump in my throat: the famous scene where Bobbie sees†“Daddy, My Daddy!” for the first time after he returns from a long separation. This is a fabulous adaption of the much-loved novel by E Nesbit. Of all the pop-up venues that theatre has graced in London in recent years, a real-life railway station has to be one of the most impressive and does not fail to delight audiences of all ages. A real treat for all the family!”
