“I’m incredibly excited about getting to play in 2:22”, said Felton. “I first started acting age 6 in a local theatre group and I haven’t trodden the boards since. I love the play, I’ve taken all my family to see it & everyone leaves with a smile. I’m thrilled to be part of this summers cast and will have a lot of fun with it.”

Mandip Gill will play Jenny. Previously, Gill's TV credits include the assistant in Doctor Who opposite Jodie Whittaker. BEatriz Romilly will play Lauren and Sam Swainsbury will play Ben.

In a review of 2:22 - A Ghost Story, our critic said: “2:22 A Ghost Story includes a meditation on the debilitating legacy of loss that stays with you long after the collective nervous laughter from the crowd has ceased.”
