A SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD. TITLE

The Railway Children (Musical Play)

Richard John, Edith Nesbit, Julian Woolford

Full Length Musical, Dramatic Comedy  /  5f, 5m

Book and Lyrics by Julian Woolford
Music by Richard John
From the novel by E. Nesbit

E. Nesbit's well-loved tale of the three Victorian children sent to live in the countryside with their mother after their father has been disgraced for supposedly betraying his country's secrets is brought vividly to life in this new adaptation, losing nothing of the original spirit of humor, tension, adventure and the final triumph of good over evil.
