It was truly wonderful to see the Village Hall being used for a drama production again. The Exeter Drama Company worked hard to transform the stage into the ghostly Fal Vale railway station in Arnold Ridley’s play The Ghost Train.
Directed by Frances Guy and Robin Thwaytes of the Exeter Drama Company, the play told the story of six passengers who found themselves marooned at the isolated Cornish railway station having missed the last connection of the night. Local legend has it that the station was haunted by a mysterious ghost train the sight of which brings death to any that witness it.
Performed over three busy nights, there was much laughter from the audience as the passengers endeavoured to survive the night and avoid the approach of the Ghost Train. Our Social Club opened the bar for drinks as well as serving tea, coffee and pasties. It made for an enjoyable evening for all.
The Exeter Drama Company will return in December with their performance of Weird Woman, a tale of a family of women fighting to embrace their power in this atmospheric tale of ancient magic.
