Archives - The Ghost Train

by Arnold Ridley

Directed by Joan Goodwin

Thursday 6th – Saturday 15th January 1983 in the Auditorium

A feckless young man accidentally strands six fellow passengers and himself at a sinisterly remote Cornish railway station whose psychic station-master tells them a weird tale of a ghost train. Ghost train there certainly is and other alarming manifestations throughout a hair-raising night in the waiting room.

Written as a ‘drama’ in the 1920’s, its initial popularity has never waned but changing taste has transformed it into a melodramatic comedy. It is ideal post-Christmas entertainment.
