The 2:22 A Ghost Story West End production continues a strong tradition of spooky fare in this famous theatre district, including the historic long-runner The Woman in Black, which uses traditional stagecraft to create a terrifying psychological horror experience. Robins’s play likewise digs into the core questions about our belief, or scepticism of, visitors from the beyond; the plot involves the couple and their first dinner party guests debating a mysterious happening at 2:22am, and deciding to stay up and face it together.

What to Watch For

  • Danny Robins is no stranger to scary happenings. He created the BBC’s Young Dracula series and also two podcasts that examine the supernatural. The Battersea Poltergeist examines a haunting that became national news, with one house beset by loud noises and objects flying around, while Haunted digs into people’s real experiences with ghosts — like a spirit trying to murder a couple’s baby daughter.
  • Director Matthew Dunster also has form when it comes to chilling plays. He helmed Martin McDonagh’s A Very Very Dark Matter, about the disturbing world of Hans Christian Andersen, and also McDonagh’s Hangmen, featuring the second-best hangman in England — and a mysterious stranger who wreaks havoc.
  • The show will feature illusions by Chris Fisher. He’s a member of the Magic Circle and made a key contribution to productions like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Back to the Future: The Musical, The Prince of Egypt, Company, and Angels in America.
  • Also featured among this all-star creative team is designer Anna Fleischle, who collaborated with Matthew Dunster on A Very Very Dark Matter and Hangmen — winning Olivier, Critics’ Circle and Evening Standard Theatre Awards for the latter. She was Olivier nominated again recently for the play Home, I’m Darling and musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
