Sudbury Dramatic Society - The Railway Children Promo - The Quay Theatre, Sudbury from Offshoot Films on Vimeo.
This is the same script as the productions in London and in York and the first thing to say about The Quay production is that no children and no trains are involved!
Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis are played as adults looking back and telling their story to the audience, often speaking directly to the audience to do so.
When their father is taken away by mysterious men for reasons unknown, Mother and the children are forced to move to the country where they make friends with the Perks the Porter and become a part of the village as The Railway Children.
