The Ghost Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore | Amicus horror anthology styled chills head to the London stage
The Ghost Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore is a 2016 British portmanteau horror play, bringing to the stage the flavour of classic Amicus anthologies like Dr Terror’s House of Horrors, and is scheduled to depart daily from 7 to 19 March 2016 at the Tristan Bates Theatre in London.
‘Five people are invited to a fancy dress party on a vintage steam train. The guests are told to come in costume as their favourite monster – and every monster has a story to tell…’
Christopher Fowler, Stephen Gallagher, Kim Newman, Robert Shearman, Lynda E. Rucker and Lisa Tuttle have penned the segments, with a wraparound story by director Sean Hogan.
Jenny Runacre stars as the hostess, with Claire Louise Amias as the vampire, Jamie Birkett as the Broken Doll, Billy Clarke as Frankenstein’s Monster, Jonathan Rigby as the Devil, and James Swanton as the Ghost.
Oh, and the wicked poster is designed by non-other than Graham Humphreys, who did the superb Vincent Price London Legacy Tour poster (of which only a handful remain to buy over on the Vincent Price Legacy UK website).
