A rehearsed reading by Robert Lloyd Parry

"Now, sir, mark this, and judge how my mind is troubled. The spectre came back, a week ago. Ever since, it has been there, now and again, by fits and starts."
The Signalman (1866), Charles Dickens

On a lonely stretch of railway line, a signalman sees forms and hears voices.
Echoes of the past? Or visions of things to come?

Charles Dickens’s short ghost story is acclaimed as one of the eeriest in the English language. Now it is bought vividly to life in this dramatic rehearsed reading.

Tickets and Performance Information
