Additionally, set design by Anna Fleischle, costumes is by Cindy Lin and with lighting by Lucy Carter. Also including, Ian Dickinson as sound for Autograph Sound, and illusions is by Chris Fisher.

Danny Robins, said: “I’m so damn thrilled that the 2:22 A Ghost Story journey gets to continue. The response to the play so far has blown me away. Since I was a kid I’ve been obsessed by ghost stories, and I’m so glad that theatre audiences seem to feel the same way.

“My aim, writing the play, was to create a fun, spooky, thought-provoking night out, a show that leaves you buzzing, on the edge of your seat, questioning what you believe. If you haven’t seen it yet, I hope you’ll come down to the Criterion and see what you believe… if you dare!”

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.

Tickets will be available soon!
