Pre-1947, date and venue unknown
The Ghost Train is a comedy-thriller, written in 1923 by the English actor and playwright Arnold Ridley, later of Dad’s Army fame. The story centres on the interaction among a group of railway passengers who have been stranded at a remote rural station overnight and are increasingly threatened by a mysterious external force.
The date of the play is not known, but as it was listed in the ‘Past Productions’ on the programme for This Happy Breed, it must have been before May 1947. However, the wartime rationing of photographic film means that the production shown here must have been post-war.
