The Ghost Train

Ferndown Drama

The Ghost Train

Written by Arnold Ridley
Directed by David Pile

Take a journey back to the 1920s with Ferndown Drama when they present The Ghost Train at the Barrington Theatre from 24 – 27 April. This comedy drama written by Arnold Ridley (Dad’s Army‘s Private Godfrey) tells the story of a group of passengers stranded at a remote West Country railway station, facing the prospect of a night in the waiting room. But when the old Stationmaster warns them about the phantom train that haunts the tracks after dark, they are subjected to one chilling moment after another.

This unnervingly hilarious thriller has a ghostly train, sudden death and a travelling parrot, combined with a wet and stormy night, which will keep the audience on the edge of their seats as the tension mounts, sometimes relieved by comical interludes.

Performances are at 7.30pm each evening from Wednesday 24 April to Saturday 27 April, plus a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets are available online and are priced at £12, also from the Barrington box office.
