Background


The Signalman was Charles Dickens's final completed work, written after the writer himself had survived a train crash.


This adaptation by Martin Malcolm ('Warped' - VAULT Festival 2019) remains faithful to the original text but also incorporates other aspects of Dickens's writing, including the introduction of Joe the crossing sweeper, who listens as the signalman's tale unfolds.


The story was famously adapted by the BBC in the 1970s as one of the popular Ghost Stories for Christmas, starring Denholm Elliott as the signalman.


Synopsis


A signalman is haunted by a mysterious figure standing at the mouth of a train tunnel.
