• Classic play "The Railway Children" to be performed on London train platform

    2010-11-02

    The classic British play "The Railway Children" will be performed on unused Eurostar train platforms near Waterloo station in London until January 2, 2011.

    The play is a tearjerker about an Edwardian family that goes through trials, tribulations and hard times while living near a railway station. This version, which was written by Mike Kenny and produced by York Theatre Royal, will feature adult actors playing the children of the family and reflecting on their experiences, according to the New York Times.

    The staging of the play, which was constructed from scratch by specialists, features seats on either side of the train platform, which will function as the stage. The play will feature ambient sound effects and props like a footbridge and signal box. At the end of the play, a full-operational Victorian steam engine arrives on the set, the news source reports.

    Chief executive of tourism group Welcome to Yorkshire Gary Verity has said of the play, "Many of the themes which run through the storyline are still relevant to families today, and when combined with such a magical adaptation you have a show that will delight people for a long time to come.
