The Titfield Thunderbolt - Theatre
Showing from - Wednesday, April 20, 2016 until Saturday, April 23, 2016
Woodfield Community Centre - Stockport
All aboard for a rollicking evening of hilarious nostalgia!
The Titfield Thunderbolt pokes fun at bureaucracy,” jobsworths” and the economic situation, all of which combines to provide the whole family with a delightful evening’s fun at the theatre.
The branch line between Mallingford and Titfield is losing money and British Rail is intent on closing it down. In desperation the villagers exploit the 1947 Transport Act and decide to take charge and run it themselves – with a train resurrected from a local museum! As well as convincing the railway authorities that they are competent to work the line, they have to face problems from Vernon Crump who is set on providing a competitive bus service.
A truly delightful play, perfect for grandparents and children alike, not to mention steam-train enthusiasts! The Titfield Thunderbolt is a must see.
