With an ensemble cast of 20 plus, Roscommon County Youth Theatre presents 'The Railway Children' adapted to a stage play by Mike Kenny, based on the novel of the same name by novelist E. Nesbit at Roscommon Arts Centre on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th February at 8pm.

The story follows the adventures of the Waterbury children, who are forced to move with their mother from a luxurious Edwardian villa in the London suburbs to "Three Chimneys", a house near the fictional 'Great Northern and Southern Railway' in the Yorkshire, as the father who works at the Foreign office, has been imprisoned as a result of being falsely accused of selling state secrets to the Russians.

The children seek solace in the nearby railway station, and make friends with Perks the Porter and the Station Master himself. Each day the children run throughthe field to the railway track and wave at the passing London train, sending their love to their father. Little do they know that the kindly old gentleman passenger who waves back holds the key to their father's disappearance. Travel with the children on many adventures in their journey to find their father
