Ghost Stories, the West End's scariest show has announced that it will close its doors for the last time on 15th march (2015) after nearly 1000 performances, five years since its premiere, playing to over 400,000 people worldwide.
Written and directed by Jeremy Dyson (The Leaugue of Gentlemen) and Andy Nyman, (Severence, Deadset), along with the Lyric theatre's Artistic Director Sean Holmes, the show went on to become the Lyric Hammersmith's biggest success to date, breaking all box office records with an extended run to meet public demand.
The production, which had already begun to develop a cult following among horror fans and theatregoers alike, then transferred to the Duke of York's theatre in 2011. Running for over a year to full houses and spine chilling screams every night, the play toured Toronto and Moscow, putting hearts in mouths wherever it went.
In 2014, Ghost Stories reopened at the West End Arts Theatre, who hosted the stage phenomenon, breaking all box office records in its history, including playing to a record number of people in one night on the spookiest night of the year, Halloween.
Ghost Stories mixes the very best of theatre with the intense buzz of a thrill ride, delivering something truly unique. With some new moments of shock, the show is a stage fright like no other - 80 rollercoaster minutes of chilling laughs and the scariest fun you'll ever have in the theatre.
So if you want to see these, book your tickets now before it's too late. Ghost Stories must end on Sunday 15 March.
