A BIT ABOUT THE PLAY
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.
Hope to see you at the auditions. Cilla
