Make The Streets Your Stage: GHOST STORIES

Ghost Stories Beware: all is not as it seems. Keep your wits about you as you delve into London’s shadowy depths - here, experience some of the most chilling attractions that the city has to offer, before a spine-tingling performance of Ghost Stories at the Ambassadors Theatre.

About The Show:

Created by Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson, Ghost Stories – the oh-so spooky live event – has taken to haunting the West End since October of this year. Revived at the Lyric Hammersmith in early 2019, the production sees its protagonist (Professor of Parapsychology Phillip Goodman), weave a mysterious web of seemingly inexplicable events. Staged as a lecture, with the action shaped by these paranormal experiences, this most puzzling of plots begins to unravel, piece by piece.

Ghost Stories enjoyed its premiere in Liverpool in 2010, before transferring to the Lyric, and again to the Duke of York’s and Arts Theatres. The production was also translated onto the big screen on 2017, with Nyman heading a superlative cast; Alex Lawther, Martin Freeman and Paul Whitehouse among them. It is now in residence at the Ambassador’s Theatre until the 4thof January 2020, so there is still time to catch this hugely successful and scary play before it ventures further into the afterlife. Audience members must be aged 15 and over.
