Ah, yes, I remember it well, it was the Aldwych in '52. Marvellous cast, but the leading lady, the halitosis, never known anything like it - and skin like sandpaper. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are talking theatre. In this revue, written by Henry Lewis, our hero Trevor Harris is told of a mythical station, where the sun always shines, the trains run on time and the staff smile. Eventually he finds Camberwell Junction, but there is a catch, a big embarrassing catch.

Oooh, a night of mirth and song for those who love the railway.

Tel, (0207) 701 0100 Tickets, £9 (£6 concessions) The Blue Elephant Theatre, Camberwell, 8pm.
