About 2:22 A Ghost Story

Following a record-breaking run at the Noël Coward Theatre, this edge-of-your-seat, supernatural thriller returns for a brand new season at the Gielgud Theatre. Described as the theatre event of the year and after weeks of sell-out performances, audiences now have a limited chance to see what is undoubtedly the West End’s hottest ticket.  2:22 is written by award-winning writer Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcast The Battersea Poltergeist, and is directed by Matthew Dunster. Intriguing, funny and scary, it takes you into one adrenaline-filled night where secrets will emerge and ghosts may appear... What do you believe? And do you dare discover the truth?

"There's something in our house. I hear it every night, at the same time"

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.
