2:22 A Ghost Story is back for it's third consecutive West End season; this time at the Criterion Theatre!

After the phenomenal success of the first two runs, a third run was inevitable and the hotly-anticipated casting has just been announced - which I'm incredibly excited about.

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 skepticism 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.

The cast will consist of the following:

Sam - Tom Felton
Jenny - Mandip Gill
Lauren - Beatriz Romilly
Ben - Sam Swainsbury 

Tom Felton (Harry Potter) had this to say about joining the cast of 2:22, “I’m incredibly excited about getting to play in 2:22. I first started acting age 6 in a local theatre group and I haven’t trodden the boards since. I love the play, I’ve taken all my family to see it & everyone leaves with a smile. I’m thrilled to be part of this summers cast and will have a lot of fun with it.”

Mandip Gill (Doctor Who) had this to say about her West End debut, “I am thrilled to be making my West End debut as part of the new cast of an already successful show. I am equally scared of ghosts so this should be fun”.

Beatriz Romilly (Assassin's Creed) said, "I’m delighted to be returning to London and joining the new 2:22 company. I feel very lucky to be working with Matthew Dunster again, and getting a chance to dive into Danny Robins nail biting script with such a wonderful creative team and cast.”

Sam Swainsbury (Mum) said, "It's such a privilege to be joining the 2:22 company! I was really drawn to the script. It's engaging, funny, exciting and poignant, but… there was something else. Something I can’t put my finger on. Drawing me to it. Almost like… like a voice. From another place. That’s normal, right?!”

The show opens on 7th May, and will run for a strictly limited season, until 4th September. Tickets are on sale now, and you can buy tickets here.
