The Ghost Train


Hayes Players announce auditions for their December production

The Ghost Train, by Arnold Ridley.
Performance dates 4-7 December.
Auditions Thursday 8 August at 8:00pm and (if needed) Saturday 24 August at 2:00pm.

Arnold Ridley’s classic drama was first produced in 1925 and has been filmed no fewer than three times.

A very silly young man accidentally strands six passengers at a small Cornish wayside station. Despite the psychic stationmaster’s weird stories of a ghost train, they decide to stay the night in the waiting room. Soon they regret this decision as ghostly and not so ghostly apparitions materialise, before the young man reveals the true reason behind the night’s events.
