Ghost Stories Tickets

Ambassadors Theatre

After thrilling audiences at the Lyric Hammersmith, cult favourite Ghost Stories is set to haunt the West End. With plenty of scares and tension to keep you on the edge of your seat, the show opens at the Ambassadors Theatre.

A psychologically chilling cult favourite

Ghost Stories returns to the West End for another edge-of-your-seat run, guaranteed to leave audiences thrilled. Delving into our worst fears and deepest impulses, the exhilarating play runs at the Ambassadors Theatre.

Narrated by Professor of Parapsychology Mr. Goodman, Ghost Stories probes into the supernatural and spooky by recounting tales of things that go bump in the night. Based on Goodman’s research into three unusual encounters with the uncanny, Ghost Stories tickets deliver shocks, psychological second-guessing and a singularly terrifying visit to the theatre.

Ghost Stories premiered at Liverpool Playhouse in 2010 and has since enjoyed multiple West End runs, including a stint at the Duke of York’s Theatre that same year. The play was adapted for film in 2017, starring Andy Nyman, Paul Whitehouse and Martin Freeman.

This thrilling drama is co-written and directed by Andy Nyman and The League of Gentlemen's Jeremy Dyson, and in the West End, Simon Lipkin stars as Professor Goodman.

Poltergeists, phantoms and flickers in the corner of your vision: are you brave enough to step into Ghost Stories?

The productiion was excellent- as were the performances by the actors. The sets were brilliantly conceived- both in cleverness and simplicity. The audio/ visual effects were amazing and 'scary'. So job well done ! Thank you :) Roger.

Very clever and inventive. With some good jump scares and effective use of the stage for the constantly changing set. Watched this at The Lyric Hammersmith and felt compelled to watch it again. I do enjoy different or contemporary theatre with Read more

Hazard tape, flickering lights and ominous sounds and music help to build up the atmosphere before the show starts - with a jump! Although it was a matinee people around me were getting creeped out before the show started and checking whether anythin Read more
