Production · The Ghost Train by Arnold Ridley
Date · 19 to 23 June 2018
Inspired to write this play in 1923 after becoming stranded overnight at Mangotsfield railway station, it took Arnold Ridley, English actor and playwright, only one week to write The Ghost Train.
The play ran for over a year and sold out in its original London theatrical run. It is now regarded as a modern classic.

The plot revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers, who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country station in the evening.
The Station Master tries to get them to leave the site as he is closing the station for the night.
They are all reluctant to leave due to the lack of alternative accommodation for several miles, but are warned that if they remain they may be in danger from the supernatural spectre of an old railway carriage train - the ghost of one that was fatally wrecked in the locality several years before.
He tells them that it sometimes haunts the particular line they are now on and can bring death upon all those who set eyes upon it. Incredulous of his story they still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a night on the station……
