The Ghost Train

By Arnold Ripley

April 2018

Arnold Ridley's classic drama was first produced in 1925 and filmed no less than three times. A very silly young man accidentally strands six passengers at a small Cornish wayside station. Despite the stationmaster's weird stories of a ghost train, they decide to stay the night in the waiting room. Soon they regret this decision as ghostly and not so ghostly apparitions materialize, before the young man reveals the true reason behind the night's events.

The Ghost Train Reviews

"Really enjoyed The Ghost Train last night. It was very well cast with excellent costumes and set. The cast established a really good atmosphere of mystery and suspense and it was great to see a good plot well performed. Hope all goes well for the rest of the run!" Jo Pearsall

"The play was very good and I think I liked it as much as Flare Path which was my benchmark for a “goodun”. The set was excellent, the cast had strengths, and the direction, a triumph. Look forward to the next." Michael Collins
