About 2:22 A Ghost Story

2:22 A Ghost Story description

It's being called an edge-of-your-seat, supernatural thriller. It has genuinely scared audiences. Now it's back on stage for a third time in the West End, in the capital's theatreland for a brand-new limited engagement at the Criterion Theatre. The production has already had two record-breaking seasons, one at the Noël Coward Theatre and the other at the Gielgud. And we have some brand new stars for you.

2:22 is written by the brilliant Danny Robins, award winner and the man behind the smash BBC podcast The Battersea Poltergeist. The fun is beautifully directed by Matthew Dunster. There's a mystery at the heart of this play and you'll be presented with the clues you need to figure it out. The results are both funny and intriguing as well as stacked with adrenaline. Secrets emerge, ghosts might or might not turn up. What do you believe? You'll need to be brave to uncover the truth.

The premiere was nominated for three 2022 Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Play and Best Actress for Lily Allen. It was nominated for four WhatsOnStage Awards, winning Best New Play, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor.

After the play's popular run at the Noël Coward, it transferred to the Gielgud Theatre, causing a stir from December 2021 to February 2022 with a fresh new cast on the cards including Stephanie Beatriz as Lauren, James Buckley as Ben, Elliot Cowan as Sam, and Giovanna Fletcher as Jenny. It broke all box office records for a new play at the Noel Coward. Many called it the 'theatre event of the year' and the 'hottest ticket in the West End'.

The new cast members for the Criterion Theatre run are as follows, and more are to be announced. Tom Felton will play Sam, Mandip Gill will play Jenny, Beatriz Romilly will play Lauren and Sam Swainsbury will play Ben. And the rest of the team?
