Last chance to see 2:22 - A GHOST STORY - at the Criterion Theatre, for not-so silent night.

Producer Runaway Entertainment’s edge-of-your-seat, supernatural thriller 2:22 A GHOST STORY is one of the West End’s current major success stories and is set to transfer to its largest venue the Lyric Theatre where previews begin on 21 January. There are just 6 weeks left to see the current cast Tamsin Carroll, Felix Scott, Laura Whitmore and Matt Willis, with the final performance at the Criterion on 8 January. 

With a range of pantos and numerous Christmas Carol’s on stage this festival season,
2:22 - A GHOST STORY brings new meaning to the phrase ‘behind you!’ and definitely has more jump-scares than the classic Dickens tale.  This is a ghost story for the modern age with more night terrors than Scrooge can shake a stick at. 
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 her 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 are going to stay up… until 2.22am… and then they will know.
The production began its life last summer at the Noel Coward Theatre starring Lily Allen, Julia Chan, Hadley Fraser and Jake Wood. It then transferred to the Gielgud Theatre for 10 weeks from 4 December 2021. The production there, starring Stephanie Beatriz, James Buckley, Elliot Cowan and Giovanna Fletcher, completed its run on 12 February 2022. The current cast at the Criterion Theatre features Tom Felton as Sam, Mandip Gill as Jenny, Beatriz Romilly as Lauren and Sam Swainsbury as Ben. The US premiere of 2:22 - A GHOST STORY opened at the Ahmanson Theatre, Los Angeles in October and runs until 4 December 2022. 
2:22 - A GHOST STORY is written by award-winning writer Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcast The Battersea Poltergeist and the recently critically acclaimed The Witch Farm, and it is directed by Matthew Dunster. Intriguing, funny and scary, it takes audiences into one adrenaline-fueled night where secrets will emerge and ghosts may appear….What do you believe? And do you dare to discover the truth?
2:22 - A GHOST STORY is produced by Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons for Runaway Entertainment, Isobel David and Kater Gordon.
