Casting has been announced for the transfer of supernatural thriller 2:22 – A Ghost Story. Its third season will be at the Criterion Theatre from 7th May – 4th September 2022.

Cast of 2:22 – A Ghost Story

Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter) will play the role of Sam, with Mandip Gill as Jenny (Doctor Who). Additionally Beatriz Romilly as Lauren (Assassin’s Creed Valhalla), and Sam Swainsbury as Ben (Mum).

2.22 – A Ghost Story is written by award-winning writer Danny Robins and directed by Matthew Dunster. Intriguing, funny and scary, it takes audiences into one adrenaline fuelled night where secrets will emerge and ghosts may appear….What do you believe? And do you dare to discover the truth?

“There’s something in our house. I hear it every night, at the same time.”

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.

What the Writer and director have to say.

Matthew Dunster said: “Planning our 3rd iteration of 2:22 has been just as exciting as the first two; working with Danny and my Co-Director, Isabel Mar, and our brilliant casting directors to re-imagine the characters once more. It’s such a privilege to do that and to know audiences are excited about ‘who’s next?’  We have a wonderful cast that once again is loaded with surprise, excitement and West End Debuts. People love watching this show and we love making it.”

Danny Robins said: “I’m overjoyed to have a cast of this outrageously exciting calibre for our new season. Tom and Mandip are stellar talents who I have admired for years, Sam is awesome and will be known and loved by comedy fans and Beatriz is someone I know is bursting with ability and on the cusp of stardom. Each new cast unlocks new surprises and thrills for me as a writer, each actor bringing their own distinctive take to the play. If you haven’t seen 2:22 before, there’s never been a better reason to come, if you have seen it, come back and see it again with this exciting line-up!” 

2:22 – A Ghost Story features set design by Anna Fleischle and costumes by Cindy Lin. In addition to lighting by Lucy Carter, sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph Sound, and illusions by Chris Fisher.
