Furness Youth Theatre present The Railway Children at The Forum in Barrow-in-Furness. Famously filmed, this story of a prosperous Edwardian family – mother and three children – forced into near-penury in the rural north of England captures the anxieties and exhilarations of childhood with great tenderness and insight.

A major success in London, this fresh adaptation of the classic novel features a specially built life-size steam engine. Playwright Mike Kenny is one of Britain’s leading children’s playwrights, and was included in the Independent on Sunday's list of Top Ten Living UK Playwrights. His adaptation of E. Nesbit's The Railway Children won an Olivier award for Best Entertainment and has toured worldwide.

Director Chris Loveless trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. His productions have played in London’s West End, the regions, and New York, with several named critics’ choice by Time Out and the Evening Standard. Locally, Chris has directed many productions for Furness Youth Theatre and its predecessor ACT Youth Theatre.
