Barn Theatre Club presents

By Arnold RidleyDirected by Cliff Francis

Probably the best stage ghost story ever!
30th September – 8th October 2022 at 8:00pm
Matinee on October 8th at 2:30pm

At a little-used and remote railway station in the middle of a dark, cold and windy Dartmoor, six people are stranded for the night – the result of the actions of one of their number, a clownish oaf.

The stationmaster advises them to leave and tells them of the ‘ghost train’ that haunts the station and is expected this very night. They’re not safe if they stay. With no taxis and the nearest hotel five miles away, they have little option but to spend the night in the station’s gloomy booking hall, and take their chances with the ghostly train.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Limited.

Part of the Barn’s 2022-2023 season.

Welcome to the Barn Theatre website – stay a while, look around and see what we are about – if you are a regular visitor, welcome back!

I hope you all find what you are looking for.

Like everyone we have been through a tough couple of years – a silent stage in what is usually such a vibrant community was hard to accept but we did our part and are back with a swing in our step. As we head towards our end of season our thoughts are already turning to next season – our recent director’s evening showcased what we have in store, and it was lovely to have this evening in person for the first time in 3 years.

Elsewhere you will find our archives, news and plenty to entertain you – as well as the place you can buy tickets for all out upcoming productions, and contact details if you have a question or want to get involved.

Take a minute to think about joining us and playing a part– there is great joy and friendship to be found at The Barn.


Opening 16th September
