The Ghost Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore

Five people are invited to a fancy dress party on a vintage steam train. The guests were told come in costume as their favourite monster... and every monster has a story to tell.

'A terrific night out, creating a beautiful fusion of the finest form of horror literature with fabulously dynamic performances to bring a delicate mix of nuance, horror, metaphor and dark humour to life...' - James Bacon, Forbidden Planet International.

★★★★ - 'The cast shows considerable versatility in adapting to their various scenarios... while this variety show is wickedly funny and mostly campish in tone, there are also some genuine frights as the coups de théâtre.' - Anton Bitel, The Horror Show.

'A quietly creepy, witty tour of modernday horror with an authentically 19th century ring...' - Remote Goat.



Produced by Ellen Gallagher and Steve Jordan for Bad Bat Productions.
