About the show
A new and remarkably faithful adaptation by Mike Kenny of the much-loved tale by Edith Nesbit.
It was first performed in 2008 at the National Railway Museum, York, using a real steam engine! However, Kenny says you don't need a real train to perform this play… the most powerful prop is the imagination of the audience, the most effective tool the skill of the actors.
And this story has stirred the imagination of many people since it first appeared in 1905: whatever your age, the cry of 'Daddy! My Daddy!' is still likely to provoke a tear.
