A theatrical society is preparing for its next production.

Wortham and Redgrave Theatrical Society (WARTS) will perform The Ghost Train between Thursday, March 23 to Saturday, March 25 at Botesdale Village Hall.

Written in 1923 by Arnold Ridley - better known as Private Godfrey in Dad’s Army - the story centres on the interaction of a group of railway passengers stranded overnight at a remote Cornish station having missed their connection.

The stationmaster attempts to get them to leave relating the tale of a fatal rail accident leading to the station being haunted.

They refuse to go, citing lack of accommodation nearby coupled with inclement weather.

The play will be performed at 7.30pm each day.
