Spider's Web

The Ghost Train

by Arnold Ridley


20th - 25th March 2017


A nostalgic look back at a traditional comedy-thriller by a writer probably more famous as Private Godfrey, one of the stars of 'Dad's Army'.

A minor classic about a group of railway passengers stranded in a remote country station, and the tension raised by possibly supernatural events.
