The Ghost Train

By Arnold Ridley

Saturday 5 – Saturday 12 October 2019

Playhouse2, 2 Newtown Street, Shaw.

Compton Stage Society presents "The Ghost Train"

Written by Dads' Army's very own Godfrey, this play revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country station one evening.

Despite the station master trying to persuade them to leave the site, they refuse – citing the lack of alternative accommodation for several miles around as their reason. He warns them, however, of the supernatural danger of a spectral old railway carriage train that sometimes haunts the line at night, bringing death to all who set eyes upon it. Incredulous of his story, the group still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a terrifying night at the station.

This is a Halloween tale bound to raise the hairs on your neck. 

All performances start at 7.30pm. Doors and Bar open at 7.00pm.

Tickets are priced at £10.00 and go on general sale approximately 3 weeks prior to each show.
