The Ghost Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore is a 2016 British portmanteau horror play, bringing to the theatre the flavour of vintage Amicus film anthologies such as Tales from the Crypt and Doctor Terror’s House of Horrors. The Bad Bat production, produced by Ellen Gallagher and Steve Jordan, is presented from 7 – 19 March at the Tristan Bates Theatre, London.
The play features segments written by authors Christopher Fowler, Stephen Gallagher, Kim Newman, Robert Shearman, Lynda E. Rucker and Lisa Tuttle, alongside a wraparound story by director Sean Hogan.
Five people are invited to a fancy dress party on a vintage steam train. The guests are told to come in costume as their favourite monster… and every monster has a story to tell…
The hostess is Jenny Runacre. The monsters are: Claire Louise Amias as the Vampire, Jamie Birkett as the Broken Doll, Billy Clarke as the Frankenstein Monster, Jonathan Rigby as the Devil andJames Swanton as the Ghost, with Grace Ker as the Ticket Inspector.
