The Railway Children (musical) comes to Derry
This wonderful new musical adaptation by Stephen Kingsbury and Ben Sleep is coming to Derry and it's a show I'm certainly looking forward to seeing. One of my all time favourite childhood stories is about to unfold on the Derry stage. What's not to be excited about?
This new production captures all the excitement and emotion of Nesbit's subtle critique of the English class system and aims to bring the delights of this literary classic to yet another generation.
The show will run at Derry's Millennium Forum from Monday May 9th to Wednesday May 11th.

The Railway Children tells the story of a family who move from London to 'The Three Chimneys', a house near the railway in Yorkshire, after their father, who works at the Foreign Office, is imprisioned after being falsely accused of spying. The children befriend an Old Gentleman who regularly takes the 9.15 train near their home: he is eventually able to help prove their father's innocence and the family are reunited.
As well as being a lovely, family orientated story, we as adults and indeed our children can learn many valuable life lessons from this wonderful tale. We learn to be brave, never give up on what we know to be right, honesty is always the best policy and that frienship is one of the dearest attributes we can have in life.
Don't miss this delighful show when it comes to Derry in May. You really won't be disappointed.
