The Wychwood Players will be performing ‘The Ghost Train’ by Arnold Ridley from Thursday 24th November to Saturday 26th November 2022 at the New Beaconsfield Hall, Shipton under Wychwood OX7 6BQ.

Arnold Ridley was best known for playing Private Godfrey in the long-running BBC series ‘Dad’s Army’.  He was also a successful playwright with over 30 plays to his name.  The Ghost Train was Ridley’s first play, written almost a hundred years ago.

The action takes place in a train station in the remote countryside where a varied group of travellers are stranded.  They learn of a local legend where a phantom train runs through the station in the early hours carrying ghosts from a train crash some years ago.  Can they, between them, solve the mystery of The Ghost Train?
