WARNING: Please be advised that Ghost Stories contains moments of extreme shock and tension. The play is unsuitable for anyone under the age of 15. We seriously advise those of a nervous disposition to think very seriously before attending.
Written and directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, Ghost Stories premiered at the Liverpool Playhouse in February 2010 before being relocated to the Lyric Hammersmith in London.
A horror story, full of interesting characters that never appear to be what they seem, is actually full to the brim with moments of humour.
Upon entering the small dark, dingy looking theatre just off the bustling streets of Leicester Square, very dark, with odd cryptic numbers on the wall the anticipation of what’s to come is almost too unbearable for some.
Between June 2010 and July 2011 the play was shown in the Duke of York’s Theatre in the West End. Now it has shape-shifted during the night to the Arts Theatre, where it has been since February of this year.
Throughout the play the sounds seem to be the most haunting part, accompanied by imagery just as harrowing, Ghost Stories really is a clever play.
It takes you on a psychological journey that keeps you guessing right until the very end.
Ghost Stories has gone onto break many box office records, it even ventured to internationally to Toronto and Moscow.
The play’s cleverest trait is that due to its clever marketing (as little as possible) audiences have no idea what to expect. So you keep guessing right up until that curtain is drawn, and you are not disappointed…
Ghost Stories is on at London’s Art Theatre until 17 August 2014.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no re-admittance into the auditorium during the performance.
