2:22 A Ghost Story

This smash hit production is written by Danny Robins and directed by Matthew Dunster. It has been thrilling audiences for some time. Now it’s transferring for the second time to its third venue, after two previous sold-out runs. Head to the Criterion Theatre and see for yourself. Three record breaking seasons at the Noel Coward Theatre, the Gielgud Theatre and the Criterion Theatre can’t be wrong. New casting has been announced for the latest transfer. The cast members for the new venue include Tom Felton as Sam, Mandip Gill as Jenny, Beatriz Romilly as Lauren and Sam Swainsbury as Ben. Can you resist the terror?

Meet Jenny. She’s frightened, certain her nice new home is haunted. Her husband Sam doesn’t believe a word of it. When their old friend Lauren and her new boyfriend Ben come to the new house for a dinner party, the arguments carry on. Belief and scepticism clash, the night darkens, time passes, and something starts to feel very wrong. Whatever it is, it’s getting closer. The four decide to stay up until 2:22 and see what happens. No wonder audiences are loving the tension this clever play generates. If you end up sleeping with the light on afterwards, you won’t be alone. It’s super-spooky!

A Good Twist
Thoroughly enjoyed this show. A few moments that will make you jump, and an ending that I didn't see coming!

Great twist at the end
I went to see this play with my boyfriend. We both really enjoyed it and loved the twist at the end! Would recommend this play as a date night idea.

Better Than Expected
Honestly, I booked the ticket thinking Tom Felton would be in the show and was pretty disappointed when I saw he wasn’t so I went for it without any expectations and I was blown away by everything. The theatre, the ambiance, the acting, costumes, the seat, everything was great.

Must see
Fabulous story - keeps you guessing till the end.

An interesting show
The show for the most part was brilliant. The only bad point I can think of is a lack of an epilogue. The main questions of the show are answered but you leave the theatre wanting to know how the actors respond to the truth.

Brilliantly scripted, well thought-out, a joy to watch!
This was a story-driven production. Although it's based in just one setting and only 4 characters, the lighting, sound, acting and script have you so absorbed that you don't miss having set changes. Each character has their own story and it comes together beautifully.

Fantastic show
Was so surprised by this show. The story and the acting was excellent. It’s one of those shows that the more you think about it after, the better it gets. Very clever.

Jump scares a plenty 😱
Amazing! Loved every minute of this play. It had the audience screaming and plenty of jump scares, you have to see this play. The acting was so believable it was like being a fly on the wall.
