SYNOPSIS:
Harbour Theatre is delighted to be presenting E. Nesbit’s THE RAILWAY CHILDREN for our December season. This adaptation by Mike Kenny will be directed by Jane Sherwood.

Rehearsals will be confirmed when cast but will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons initially. The first read through will be Sunday 3rd September 10am-1pm.

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN is the famously filmed story of a prosperous Edwardian family – mother and three children – forced into near-penury in the rural north of England and captures the anxieties and exhilarations of childhood with great tenderness and insight.

This adaption by Mike Kenny sees the siblings as young adults retelling their adventures as THE RAILWAY CHILDREN - it is fast paced and energetic.


Please prepare short 2-3 minute monologue of your choice and be prepared to cold read from the script.
