2:22 A Ghost Story

Danny Robins' thriller 2:22 A Ghost Story in London for strictly limited season

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.

Please note that the age recommendation for this play is 14-and-above.
