The Ghost Train

by Arnold Ridley

One winter's night, a very silly man pulls the train's communication cord, successfully stranding himself and fellow passengers at a remote Cornish station. Forced to occupy the waiting-room until dawn, they learn of the ghost train expected that very night...

Regarded as a modern classic, this comedy thriller written in 1923 by Arnold Ridley (better known as Private Godfrey in Dad's Army) ran in the West End for 665 performances.

Over 90 years later, the play is ever popular as it recalls the bygone age of steam and combines humour with suspense to evoke giggles and gasps in equal measure.

The Regina


The Regina Monologues by Rebecca Russell and Jenny Wafer to be directed by Keely Beresford will be at the Silk Mill on Monday 10th, Tuesday 11th & Wednesday 12th July for Frome Festival and as part of the Shaftesbury Fringe on Sunday 2nd July at The Cattle Market Shaftesbury.

One Man. Six Wives. A feast of monologues at times witty, feisty, nave, melancholic, bucolic, hysterical, wistful, lustful, hurtful but never ever dull. The Donald Trump of the 16th century has his wives dragged kicking and in some cases, screaming into contemporary times. Their experiences miscarriage, love affairs, betrayal, and a shared loathing of all things ginger are portrayed with humour, pathos and a great deal of wine

Come along and eavesdrop.
