Philip Goulding's fun-filled inventive comedy with a great familiar title.

Based on the original Ealing comedy screenplay by TEB Clarke

The branch line between Mallingford and Titfield is threatened with closure, so the plucky
Titfield villagers decide to take matters into their own hands and run it themselves! But
can they disentangle themselves from all that cumbersome red tape … and will they beat the rival bus service run by local shyster Vernon Crump?

With all the fun of ‘The 39 Steps’, and all Rumpus’s customary “mastery of lighting and sound” (whatsonstage.com), climb aboard for a rollicking evening of hilarious nostalgia!
