Description

Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story. When a traveler chances upon a solitary railway signalman, he is drawn into a tale of ghostly premonitions, tragic occurrences and human solitude that echoes the contrasting Victorian feelings towards the nascent railway system. Blue Orange Arts skillfully crafts James Nicholas’ faithful adaptation into a claustrophobic re-telling of arguably Dickens’ most chilling tale. Beware the ringing of the Signalman’s bell!

Such a strong cast. A great wee play. I had goosebumps

As a big Dickens fan I was looking forward to seeing an adaptation of this relatively unknown piece. I have to say I was not disappointed, it was a first class adaptation, excellently performed, great costumes and a surprisingly detailed soundscape. Highly recommended.
