2:22 A Ghost Story

Booking Info

This award-winning supernatural thriller continues its phenomenal run - returning to the Gielgud Theatre this Summer.

Following five record-breaking seasons at the Noël Coward, Gielgud, Criterion, The Lyric Theatre and The Apollo Theatre, and currently selling out across the UK, this critically acclaimed new play has become the UK’s must-see theatre event.

2:22 A Ghost Story is written by award-winning writer Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcast 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.
