The Ghost Train was first produced in 1925 and our production will be set in that era so it is most definitely a period piece with the dialogue and mannerisms of that time.

6 passengers are stranded on a small wayside Cornish station and despite the station master’s stories of a ghost train they decide to stay the night.

EXTRA LONG REHEARSAL TIME    Production Dates 3rd to 6th July 2019. 

Scripts available 

Hope to see you at the auditions. Cilla
