The Olivier award-winning production of The Railway Children will be extending its run at the King’s Cross Theatre for another three months until the 10th April 2016 due to high demand for tickets it has been announced.
Damien Cruden’s production originally opened at the theatre to critical and public acclaim on the 14th January 2015, following previews from the 16th December 2014.
With a cast including Martin Barrass as Mr Perks, Caroline Harker as Mother, Louisa Clein as Phyllis and Clare Corbett as Mrs Perks, the production is in support of the Railway Children Charity that supports homeless and runaway children from across the world.
The Railway Children tells the story of Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis, three children whose lives change dramatically when their father is mysteriously taken away. They move from London to a cottage in rural Yorkshire with their mother, where they befriend the local railway porter, Perks, and embark on a magical journey of discovery, friendship and adventure. But the mystery remains – where is Father, and is he ever coming back?
Set in the purpose 1000 seat theatre at King’s Cross, the production features designs by Joanna Scotcher, lighting by Richard G. Jones, music by Christopher Madin and sound by Craig Vear.
The news of the extension is particularly special as 2016 marks the 110th anniversary of the publication of Edith Nesbit’s much loved classic book. Talking about the extension, producers of The Railway Children said: “We are thrilled to be steaming into our second sensational year at this wonderful venue.”
