The Signalman

The New Theatre & WitchWork Theatre Company

Written by Charles Dickens in 1866, this classic ghost story tells of a lone Signalman haunted by visions of a spectre, whose terrifying arrival foretells a tragedy.

Brought to life for a new audience in 1976 when filmed for the BBC as part of their Ghost Stories for Christmas series, this new adaptation by Jane McCarthy expands on the relationship between the narrator and the Signalman, exploring the classic tale through a modern lens, focusing on class, masculinity, paranoia and mental health, while retaining the original's pervading sense of dread.
