Performing at The Electric theatre,Guildford
Better known in recent times as Private Godfrey in Dad’s Army, as a younger man Ridley was a successful West End playwright. The Ghost Train, first seen in 1923, is his best known and most frequently performed play.
Stranded in a lonely Cornish railway station late at night, an ill-assorted group of characters find themselves caught up in the eerie tale of a spectral train and the series of startling events that its imminent appearance sets in motion. The Ghost Train is a thrilling and chilling suspense drama with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing to the very end. Its special effects were unrivalled in its day and, even now, the dramatic appearance of the ghost train itself is a spectacular theatrical tour de force.
