2:22 – A Ghost Story is to extend its run in the West End with a new cast.
Danny Robins’ supernatural thriller is currently playing at the Criterion Theatre. It will extend its current run from 4 September to 8 January 2023.
A new cast for the extension period is to be announced.
The production first began its life in summer 2021 at the Noel Coward Theatre starring Lily Allen, Julia Chan, Hadley Fraser and Jake Wood.
It then transferred to the Gielgud Theatre with Stephanie Beatriz, James Buckley, Elliot Cowan and Giovanna Fletcher.
The current third season at the Criterion Theatre features Tom Felton as Sam, Mandip Gill as Jenny, Beatriz Romilly as Lauren and Sam Swainsbury as Ben.
“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.

Danny Robins said: “When this play opened in the summer of 2021 I couldn’t have dreamed that we’d be where we are now – in our third West End theatre, planning our fourth season! With each run, it’s been so great to see our new casts make it their own, and I’m so delighted that this modern ghost story of mine keeps connecting with audiences.
“I hope it’s more than just a play, it’s an exciting, adrenaline-filled night out that will have you laughing and jumping in equal measure and then you’ll spend the rest of the night talking about it with your mates, trying to crack the mystery! Do ghosts really exist? There’s only one way to find out – get yourself down to the Criterion to see 2:22!”
Director Matthew Dunster added: “On we go again! It’s such a thrill to know we get to extend our run of 2:22 at the Criterion through Christmas and into the New Year. And we finally get to do our spooky play on Halloween. What a night that will be.
“When we dared to put this new play straight into the West End last summer we couldn’t have dreamed it would stir the people’s imagination in the way it has this past year. We love doing Danny’s wonderful play for our audiences, and their ongoing loyalty to the show and their joy at discovering each new cast has been so exciting for us..”
