THE SIGNALMAN’S APPRENTICE by Brian Phelan

Category

Albert and Alfred are two elderly signalmen coming up for retirement after forty years in the same box. For the last four years the yard they controlled has been totally empty, the phones and telegraphs cut off. But, as they have somehow not been eliminated from British Rail’s computer payroll, they continue to live there and go through all the motions of their job with the aid of a scale model, their relaxation from this task being to make plans for their retirement, until one morning the computer sends a young apprentice to join them…

First performed at the Oxford Playhouse in 1969 starring Gordon Jackson and James Grout
