About 2:22 A Ghost Story

Following a record-breaking UK and Ireland Tour, the “bona fide West End phenomenon” (Time Out) now returns to London! Running for a strictly limited 10 week season at the Gielgud Theatre from 25 May. A brand-new star cast will feature Donna Air (Byker Grove, The Big Breakfast, BBC's The Split) as Lauren, James Buckley (The Inbetweeners and Podcaster) returning as Ben, Stacey Dooley (TV Presenter and Strictly winner) as Jenny and Joe McFadden (Holby City, The Crow Road) as Sam.

2:22 A Ghost Story is written by award-winning writer Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcasts Uncanny and The Battersea Poltergeist, and is directed by Matthew Dunster and Isabel Marr. Brilliantly funny and intriguing; 2:22 A Ghost Story is an adrenaline filled night, where secrets emerge and ghosts may or may not appear. What do you believe? And do you dare discover the truth?


Jenny believes her new home is haunted, but her husband Sam isn't having any of it. They argue with their first dinner guests, old friend Lauren and new partner Ben. Can the dead really walk again? Belief and scepticism clash, but something feels strange and frightening, and that something is getting closer. So they're going to stay up until 2:22... and then they'll know.

Intense, Must see, Great staging, Great acting, Clever

See it if you love a mystery, and to be left on the edge of your feet. If you enjoy piecing together a plot and filling in gaps, this one is for you!

Don’t see it if you dislike horror, jump scares and loud noises. If you don’t like being afraid or left in the dark, or if you dislike twists.
