Arnold Ridley s classic comedy-thriller, The Ghost Train, was first produced in 1925 and has been a firm favourite with professional and non-professional theatre companies ever since. Six passengers find themselves stranded late at night in the waiting-room of an isolated Cornish railway station. Ignoring the ghostly tales and dire warnings of the stationmaster, they decide to stay where they are until morning with terrifying consequences. Finally, all is revealed and the details of a fiendish plot are laid bare.

The revisions have been made by Jocelyn and Nicolas Ridley (Arnold s son) and predominantly modernise some of the language and combine a couple of the characters to make it a cast of 10 rather than a cast of 12. But it retains all the charm and excitement of the much-loved original.
