The Ghost Train

A classic suspense drama by Arnold Ridley

4 - 7 December 2019, 7.45pm

Arnold Ridley's classic drama was first produced in 1925 and has been filmed no fewer than three times.

A very silly young man accidentally strands six passengers at a small Cornish wayside station. Despite the psychic stationmaster's weird stories of a ghost train, they decide to stay the night in the waiting room. Soon they regret this decision as ghostly and not so ghostly apparitions materialise, before the young man reveals the true reason behind the night's events.

All My Sons

by Arthur Miller

19 - 22 February 2020, 7.45pm

The story concerns the fortunes of the Keller and Deever families. During the war, Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop which made aeroplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller, however, went free and made a lot of money. The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from war to find his father in prison and his fatherís partner free, are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reactions of a son to his guilty father is a fitting conclusion to a play which is electrifying in its intensity.


Auditions: Thursday 12th September and Wednesday 18th September at 8pm in the Merrill Studio.

Dead Funny

by Terry Johnson

22 - 25 April 2020, 7.45pm

While Eleanor wants a child, her willing partner, Richard, is too busy running the Dead Funny Society. But in a week when British comedy heroes Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill both kick the bucket, the society gather for a celebration, which promises to be full of hilarity and laughter well, for everybody except the disgruntled Eleanor anyhow.

Terry Johnson's hilarious comedy of mortality and marriage was premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in January 1994. This second edition was published for the West End revival in October 2016 at the Vaudeville Theatre, London.


Auditions: Thursday 9th January at 8pm & Saturday 18 January at 3pm at the Merrill Studio.
