Our upcoming Autumn production ‘The Titfield Thunderbolt’ A play by Philip Goulding. Based on the original Ealing comedy screenplay by T.E.B. Clarke.

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. All aboard for a rollicking evening of hilarious nostalgia!
Lady Edna Chesterford, whose grandfather started the railway and her diatribe against the interfering little Hitlers who run England with their clipboards memorably captures the subversive spirit of Ealing comedy. For collectors of cherishable English comedy, this enjoyably chaotic show is First class.
It’s a fun evening and a romp in a very old, very British tradition with some marvellous theatre effects. What more could you want? This wonderful stage version is all dished up with hilarious consequences. Very funny. A good-natured and delightful play
Charming and mischievious. Rattling good fun. The play is full of gentle humour and permeated with affection not only for the railway, but also for the era, with authentic and thoughtful touches of the 50s throughout.
An evening of fun from this cheerful and delightful play.
