Victoria Junction - All Change Please!
by Nickey Barnard, Jerry Elsmore, Alex Jones, Sue Lee, Tym Norris, Mark Steedman

This is a horde game which will have 6 cast characters who will remain as the same characters throughout the game and then a horde group who will play roles for as little as 30 seconds up to an hour or so, as passengers, hotel guests, and assorted others. We aim for things to stay on track and for no-one to get ideas above their Station
