The Exmouth Players presents “The Titfield Thunderbolt”, a comedy by Philip Goulding, based on the original Ealing screenplay by T.E.B. Clarke, at The Blackmore Theatre in Bicton Street, Exmouth, from Monday 3rd through to Saturday 8th July 2017, to include a Matinee performance on the Saturday. Evening performances are at 7.30pm – Matinee starts at 2.30pm.
Finding that their branch railway line will be axed, the residents of the village of Titfield decide to buy the railway and run it themselves. Now they must convince the railway authorities they are competent, and complete against a planned bus service, the operators of whom are bitterly opposed to the railway campaign.
The villagers are granted a month’s trial period within which they must prove they are competent to run the railway. What awaits the fate of this railway line? Will obstacles be placed in the way of the villagers’ attempts to run the railway?
What about the engine itself? There is talk of using the antique Thunderbolt from the local museum.
What will be the outcome? Will the villagers succeed or will the operators of the bus company ending up rubbing their hands with glee?
This play is a great one for families. Don’t think you will be sat there watching the play. You might be asked to get involved!!!!! Such is the magic of live theatre – you just don’t know what is going to happen next!!
This amateur production of “The Titfield Thunderbolt” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
