The multi-award-winning singer Lily Allen will make her West End debut in 2:22 - A Ghost Story this summer. It's a West End debut for playwright Danny Robins too, with 2:22 - A Ghost Story at the Noel Coward Theatre from 3 August - 16 October.

Lily Allen will play Jenny, a woman who has just moved into a new home with her husband Sam. Shortly after moving in, Jenny believes the house is haunted, inviting friends Lauren and Ben for a dinner party to get in touch with the dead. Together, they stay up until 2:22am to find out, but can they contact ghosts?

Lily Allen is best known as a singer-songwriter, with hits including "The Fear", "Smile" and "Not Fair". Even though 2:22 - A Ghost Story marks her West End debut, she's from a theatrical family: her brother is Alfie Allen who has starred in Game of Thrones and her father, Keith Allen has starred in Treasure Island at Theatre Royal Haymarket.

The compelte cast includes Hadley Fraser as Sam, who previously starred in City of Angels at the Garrick Theatre. Julia Chan plays Lauren, with Eastenders' Jake Wood as Ben.

2:22 - A Ghost Story is written by Danny Robins, whose podcast The Battersea Poltergeist is being adapted into a television series. Matthew Dunster directs, with scenic design by Anna Fleischle, costume design by Cindy Lin, lighting design by Lucy Carter, and sound design by Ian Dickinson for Autograph Sound.

Dear Evan Hansen will reopen at the Noel Coward Theatre from 26 October.
