Who is the faceless figure by the tunnel warning the haunted signalman?
In this eerie version of Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian ghost story, a terrified signalman unburdens himself to the young student who chances upon his railway cutting. He tells a chilling tale of the spectre that haunts him, and the terrible disasters that follow each appearance…but what horror is the ghost trying to warn of this time? And is the young man’s visit quite so innocent as it at first appears?
The cast includes John Goodrum as The Signalman, Pavan Maru as the The Young Man, and David Gilbrook as The Train Driver. The production is directed by Karen Henson and designed by John Goodrum, with original lighting design by Keith Tuttle and sound designed by David Gilbrook.

“A clever blend of An Inspector Calls and The Woman in Black … an evening of old-fashioned spooky fun” Kentish Times
“It’s a slow burner that builds to a roaring fire … a gripping ghost story … lights, smoke and whistles make you really feel a steam train is thundering past, to the point where you even see people leaning as if to let it through” Worthing Herald
“A marvellous re-telling of an involving horror story with excellent special lighting and effects on the line on which the trains rampage directly toward the audience, whistles, smoke, steam and darkness enveloping the set and spilling out into the house … This is the stuff of true story-telling to frighten your socks off – a terrifying terrific night out. Ditch the tellybox and make tracks to the Theatre” Windsor Observer
