2:22 A Ghost Story Tickets

7 May 2022 - 4 Sep 2022

2:22 A Ghost Story Information

A spine-tingling tale returns to the West End — see it if you dare! In this supernatural thriller, something otherworldly happens every night at 2:22am. Do you believe the dead can return? Test your courage. 2:22 A Ghost Story tickets will be available on London Theatre soon.

The 2:22 A Ghost Story play features an intriguing premise. When Jenny and Sam move into a new house, Jenny is convinced their new abode is haunted. They argue about whether or not ghosts exist with their first dinner guests — and all four decide to stay up until 2:22am to confront the unknown.

The premiere of 2:22 A Ghost Story took palce at London’s Noel Coward Theatre in 2021. The original cast featured Lily Allen, Hadley Fraser, Julia Chan and Jake Wood. Then 2:22 A Ghost Story returned to the West End for Christmas 2021, starring Encanto actress Stephanie Beatriz. 2:22 A Ghost Story is now at the Criterion Theatre for 2022, its third venue in a year.

British theatre has an impressive heritage when it comes to scary stories, so the 2:22 A Ghost Story play follows a fine tradition. The most famous example is Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black, which Stephen Mallatratt adapted for stage in 1987, and which has been performed in London since 1989 — making it the second-longest-running play in West End history. We’ve also had theatrical chillers like The Exorcist, Ghost Stories, Variant 31, Witness for the Prosecution, and Frankenstein.

Now hitting the West End is 2:22 A Ghost Story, written by Danny Robins. Robins has form in this area: he created the BBC series Young Dracula and two spook-tastic podcasts, Haunted and The Battersea Poltergeist. Haunted examines real-life experiences, from a racetrack where drivers are seemingly reanimated to parents who were convinced that a ghost was trying to kill their baby daughter, while The Battersea Poltergeist blends drama and documentary to investigate one of Britain’s strangest and most disturbing hauntings.

Tickets for 2:22 A Ghost Story in the West End will be available on London Theatre soon.

Lily Allen shrieks before she even says a word in 2:22: A Ghost Story, which tips you off immediately as to the way Danny Robins's debut West End play is due to proceed. But the name-grabbing debut on view is, of course, singer-songwriter Allen, who was due some years back to be penning a major musical of Bridget Jones's Diary from which she parted company along the way.Instead, here Allen is, looking sleek and glam and very much forming part of the four-person ensemble that has been assembled...
