‘Daddy! My Daddy!’

Few who have seen the classic film based on E. Nesbit’s novel will forget those words or the emotion they provoke. This wonderful Edwardian family classic THE RAILWAY CHILDREN has never ‘run out of steam’ and Harbour Theatre will soon bring it vividly to life on the Harbour stage at Camelot – with all its humour, tenderness and the exhilarations of childhood. This fresh new adaptation is based on the huge hit that was staged at Waterloo Station in London.

So well known, they seem to have become part of our modern culture, THE RAILWAY CHILDREN was originally serialised in the ‘London magazine’ in 1905, and published as a book in 1906 by Edith Nesbit and tells the story of three Edwardian children who leave their London home after their father is imprisoned and move to a country village has entertained and been loved by generations.

Although radio and television adaptations have brought the adventures of Roberta, Phyllis and Peter to audiences, perhaps the 1970 film, directed by Lionel Jeffries gave us the iconic images we remember, and which now define the novel.

With a large and talented cast, award winning director Jane Sherwood brings to life the underlying themes and values of friendship, helpfulness, care, compassion and determination to life as the three children tell their story.

The story of this family coming to terms with a change in their surroundings and social circle, as well as the loss of a loved one, gives us hope this Christmas as our Railway children embody the spirit of the season in dealing with danger, working through their woes and following their dreams.

So ‘tickets please’ and ‘all aboard’ for the perfect Christmas family treat.
