Danny Robin's 2:22 - A Ghost Story play follows Jenny and Sam, a couple who have just moved into their new home.

Even though beliefs clash, but the quartet stay up to 2:22am to discover strange goings-on.

2:22 - A Ghost Story premiered at the Noel Coward Theatre in 2021, and in a review, our critic said: "2:22 A Ghost Story has [lots] on its mind, including a meditation on the debilitating legacy of loss that stays with you long after the collective nervous laughter from the crowd has ceased."
