E. Nesbit’s well-loved tale is brought to life in this new adaptation by Woolford and John. Roberta, Peter and Phyllis live in a comfortable house in London until their father, who works for the government, is falsely accused of selling state secrets and is imprisoned for five years. The children and their mother have no choice but to leave their home and move to a quiet little cottage next to a railway in Oakworth, Yorkshire.

They quickly make friends with the Station Master, Mr Perks, and an Old Gentleman who waves everyday from his carriage on the 9.15 to London. This unlikely friendship proves to be a very fortunate one and could be key to the release of their Father…

A beautiful blend of storytelling, drama, comedy and musical theatre, this really is the perfect way to make literature come alive for all the family!
