Theatre REVIEW: 2:22 A Ghost Story - ★★★★★

The new stage phenomenon that has taken the West End by storm now comes to Edinburgh.

Winner of BEST NEW PLAY at the Whatsonstage Awards, this edge-of-your-seat, supernatural thriller stars Joe Absolom (A Confession, Doc Martin), Charlene Boyd (Mayflies, River City), Nathaniel Curtis (It’s A Sin, The Witcher) and Louisa Lytton (Eastenders, The Bill).

Written by Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcasts Uncanny and The Battersea Poltergeist, 2:22 A Ghost Story comes fresh from record-breaking seasons at five West End theatres with a host of acclaimed star performances. It’s a brilliantly funny and adrenaline-filled night where secrets emerge and ghosts may or may not appear… What do you believe? And do you dare discover the truth?


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.

"This was an absolutely fantastic play.

I think this play might be one of my favourites I’ve ever seen, the acting was fantastic, the story was gripping and there was amazing use of tension building throughout the whole play. The ending of this show was fantastic and relatively unexpected."

Euan (Age 13) - ★★★★★

"A masterpiece.

Able to convey comedy into an unsettling and honestly scary performance. Entertaining and a great portrayal of the horror genre without being predictable."

Stewart - ★★★★★

"What an experience! The atmosphere in the theatre was amazing, the audience totally engrossed and even jumping if someone in the audeince dropped something. Speaking of jump scares, there's a good few in this show! So expect a few screams.

The building of atmosphere and tension in this show is pretty spectaular and well done, thanks to brilliant direction, writing and performances as well as that wonderfully unnerving set. Pay attention to this one! Loved it."
