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.

FINALLY some good (and hopefully certain!) news.

We are delighted to be planning to re-open in early July with two productions back-to-back to get us all excited and back in our lovely, lonely theatre.  Class will run in the Studio from 6th - 9th of July, and then pass the barton to My Old Lady which will go on the main stage from 10th to 17th, with the usual Sunday break.

We are still being prudent, so not all seats will be on sale just in case, but we hope to be fully back up to capacity when the new season starts in September.

Elsewhere you will find details of the new virtual Director’s meeting - so do join us and decide where and how to get back involved as we get back to what we love doing best!
