THE GHOST Train will be calling at the Beacon Church Centre next week when Rubery Drama Group stages its latest production.

The classic play, which runs from Thursday to Saturday (October 20 to 22), was written by Arnold Ridley.

Ridley, better known for playing Pte Godfrey in hit BBC sitcom Dad’s Army, was an accomplished and highly thought of playwright.

The play centres around six passengers accidentally stranded at a small Cornish wayside station and, despite the station master’s stories of a ghost train, they decide to spend the night in the waiting room – a decision they soon regret.

It was first produced in 1925 and has been made into a film three times.

Tickets, which are £7 (£6 concessions) are available by calling 0121 453 8733 or 0121 445 2323.

Doors open at 7pm with curtain up 7.30pm.
