A signalman who witnessed a horrifying tragedy is haunted by a mysterious figure standing by a railway tunnel. He’s sure it’s a warning – but what is it warning against? This fresh and thrilling adaptation of the famous Charles Dickens ghost story places the signalman at the heart of the narrative in a compelling solo show.

Written after Dickens himself survived a train crash, the short story was the writer's final completed work, and was famously adapted for television in the 1970s as one of the BBC's Ghost Stories For Christmas, starring Denholm Elliott.

Directed by Sam Raffal. Produced by Paragon Theatre Collective.

Suitable for ages 12+. Contains loud noises and references to injury.
