Truly terrifying Olivier nominated Ghost Stories returns to the West End

After record-breaking sell-out shows at the Liverpool Playhouse, the Lyric Hammersmith and London’s Arts Theatre, as well as productions in China,  Australia, Canada, Italy & Germany and a smash hit film, the original terrifying live production of Ghost Stories comes to the West End’s Ambassadors Theatre ahead of a planned UK tour. 

Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s worldwide cult phenomenon combines the best of theatre with the adrenalin of a thrill ride to bring you something truly unique and absolutely riveting and totally terrifying. 

The secret is worth keeping so we won’t tell you any more than you’ll be joining  Dr Goodman, a Professor of Parapsychology, for a lecture on people who have had paranormal experiences. That’s all we’ll say for now, but be prepared for shocks, jolts and frights. This show is not for the faint of heart (or those under 15). 

Cast and Creatives of Ghost Stories

The West End cast of Ghost Stories was recently announced with many from the original Lyric Hammersmith Theatre run set to reprise their roles for the West End transfer. The Ghost Stories cast list includes Simon Lipkin in the main role of Professor Goodman, Gary Cooper as Tony Matthews, Richard Sutton as Mike Priddle, and Preston Nyman as Simon Rifkind.

The creators of Ghost Stories are Jermy Dyson and Andy Nyman. One of the originators of The League of Gentlemen,  award-winning writer Dyson also wrote for The Wrong Mans, Tracey Ullman's Show and Tracey Breaks the News as well as the film adaptation of Ghost Stories. Nyman is co-creator and director of psychological illusionist Derren Brown’s television and stage shows. In addition to his work behind the scenes, Nyman is also an actor who has appeared in Dead Set, Severance, Kick Ass 2 and Peaky Blinders. He also originated the role of Dr Goodman in Ghost Stories, a role he reprised for the film adaptation alongside co-stars Paul Whitehouse, Alex Lawther and Martin Freeman.

Additional information about the cast and creatives of the West End run of Ghost Stories are expected to be announced in due course.

interesting, entertaining and not what I thought

Sue Rock5th January

I have seen this before but didn’t remember it to be so scary. Loved it. Tickets weren’t super expensive so good value as well. Fantastic afternoon.

Luca4th January

Excellent play. Totally recommended.

Jerry4th January

Lovely venue, not very big buy cosy. Sound quality was fantastic. The play itself was very cleverly delivered, with brilliant effects. Found the play better than the movie.

Michelle4th January

Actors very good.

Mitra4th January

Amazingly scary play!! Absolutely loved it. Really amazed at what they managed to do without special effects. Really recommend it.

Mrs Caroline Rendall4th January

I was very disappointed with this show. I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this. Apart from some very loud noises & briefly seen (bad) special effects, it was long, drawn out & boring. A performance that was only of about eighty minutes duration felt much longer. I gave it one star for the smells that wafted around during certain scenes, which I thought were quite clever.

Barbara4th January

This was my fifth visit to the show and it didn't disappoint. Love it!
