A Radio Play : To be broadcast in w/c 26th April 2021: By Charles Dickens adapted by Matthew Harper
Director: Mark Buckley
"The Signal-Man" is a first-person horror/mystery story by Charles Dickens, first published as part of the Mugby Junction collection in the 1866 Christmas edition of All the Year Round. Adapted by Matthew Harper
This is a ghost story set at a signal box on a remote stretch of line in Victorian England. A gentleman stumbles across a Signalman standing on a railway line staring into a tunnel, completely detached from reality. What follows is a story of conversation between the 2 men, spooky occurrences and a twist in this gripping, scary and engrossing tale.
Although adapted for the stage as a one-act play, this will be done as a radio play.
