First produced in 1925 and filmed no less than three times, The Ghost Train was a long running success in London and on Broadway. In Maine, near the Canadian border, there's a legend of a phantom locomotive sweeping through a peaceful village, leaving death in its wake. Despite a psychic station master's weird stories of a ghost train, the six stranded passengers decide to say the night. They soon regret the decision as ghostly and not so ghostly apparitions materialize and the ghost train comes barreling down the line.
The thirteen-actor company of The Ghost Train features new and returning professional guest artists from the tri-state area. Returning to the Centenary Stage Company stage are David Sitler (An Enemy of the People, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily) as Saul Hodgkin, Caroline Popp (The Cripple of Inishmaan) as Miss Bourne, Michael Irivin Pollard (An Enemy of the People) as Herbert Price, Craig Macdonald (The Nether) as John Sterling and Peter Kendall (Bram Stoker's Dracula) as Richard Winthrop.
