The play will transfer to the Criterion Theatre in May following runs at the Noel Coward and Gielgud Theatres.

Producer Runaway Entertainment has announced that Danny Robins’s play will be heading to the Criterion Theatre for a run of 17 and a half weeks beginning the 7th May.

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.

Directed by Matthew Dunster, the production began its life last summer at the Noel Coward Theatre starring Lily Allen, Julia Chan, Hadley Fraser and Jake Wood. It then transferred to the Gielgud Theatre for 10 weeks from the 4th December 2021. The production there starring Stephanie Beatriz, James Buckley, Elliot Cowan and Giovanna Fletcher completed its run on the 12th February 2022. Casting for this latest run will be announced soon.

The creative team behind the production includes: set design by Anna Fleischle, costume design by Cindy Lin, lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph Sound, casting by Jessica Ronane CDG and illusions by Chris Fisher, co-direction by Isabel Marr.

Danny Robins (creator of the hit BBC podcast The Battersea Poltergeist) said: “I’m so damn thrilled that the 2:22 – A Ghost Story journey gets to continue. The response to the play so far has blown me away. Since I was a kid I’ve been obsessed by ghost stories, and I’m so glad that theatre audiences seem to feel the same way. My aim, writing the play, was to create a fun, spooky, thought-provoking night out, a show that leaves you buzzing, on the edge of your seat, questioning what you believe. If you haven’t seen it yet, I hope you’ll come down to the Criterion and see what you believe… if you dare!”

2:22 A Ghost Story will play at the Criterion Theatre from the 7th May until the 4th September. To find out more about the show and to book tickets visit: https://222aghoststory.com/
