Ghost Stories Tickets

Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson's hit horror Ghost Stories returns to the West End following its successful revival at the Lyric Hammersmith with a run at the Ambassadors Theatre this October. 

Arriving just in time for Halloween, the show will be spooking the stalls once again as Professor of Parapsychology Phillip Goodman who recites the three mysterious cases he has encountered during his research that he just cannot explain. 

The play, which opened in Liverpool in 2010 before transferring to the Lyric, has played the West End twice before, with runs at the Duke of York's and Arts Theatres. Ghost Stories was also adapted for the big screen in 2017, with Nyman himself starring alongside Alex Lawther, Martin Freeman and Paul Whitehouse. 

Ghost Stories was revived at the Lyric Hammersmith in early 2019 starring Simon Lipkin, Garry Cooper, Preston Nyman, and Richard Sutton. 

Ghost Stories returns to the West End at the Ambassadors Theatre from 3rd October 2019 to 4th January 2020, with tickets available now. 

There will also be a special Halloween night performance of Ghost Stories, beginning at 10pm on 31st October. 

Ghost Stories tickets are available now.

Our Ghost Stories Review

It’s difficult to satisfy every audience; not everyone has the same sense of humour or taste in music. Rarely do you leave a theatre with a feeling like you get after Ghost Stories: a communal sense of disbelief and palpable relief. Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s thriller blends stagecraft and scares to cast a spell over its audience. Having sent shivers through the West End and on international... Read more

The West End already gives plenty of reasons for blind terror, and that's not just the sight of the price list at the box office - up to £152 for The Book of Mormon, for instance. What with that, the imminent arrival of a real-life actor impersonating Simon Cowell in a West End musical and such recent events as a theatre ceiling caving in during a storm on Shaftesbury Avenue, why put yourself in harm's...

Full casting has been announced for the return of Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s horror play Ghost Stories to the West End following its recent revival at the Lyric Hammersmith. Reprising their roles at the Ambassadors Theatre, Simon Lipkin, Garry Cooper, Preston Nyman and Mike Priddle will each appear in the transfer after taking on the parts for the Lyric production. Lipkin plays Professor Goodman, a scholar of the supernatural who investigates three terrifying tales he has never quite got to the bottom to, which are told by Cooper, Nyman and Priddle’s characters.  

Andy Nyman's Ghost Stories to return to the West End in time for Halloween
Monday, 15 July, 2019

Lyric Hammersmith’s recent revival of Ghost Stories is set to transfer to the West End for a run at the Ambassadors Theatre later this year. Written by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, the play is set around a lecture by Professor of Parapsychology Phillip Goodman. He believes most ‘ghost stories’ can be explained away, apart from three that he has come across in his research. Nyman starred in the play when it premiered at the Liverpool Playhouse 2010, before it transferred to the Lyric Hammersmith, followed by West End runs at the Duke of York’s in 2010 and the Arts Theatre in 2014.
