About the show

Cult thriller Ghost Stories returns to the West End for another edge-of-your seat run, guaranteed to leave audiences chilled. Delving into our worst fears and deepest impulses, this cult favourite is set to open 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, audiences should be prepared for shocks, psychological second-guessing and a singularly terrifying night at 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 co-writer Andy Nyman alongside Paul Whitehouse and Martin Freeman.

This thrilling drama is co-written by Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson. Nyman is an actor, writer and director best known for his work with Derren Brown; their 2006 effort Something Wicked This Way Comes was awarded the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment. Dyson is a member of quirky sketch comedy troupe The League of Gentlemen alongside Reece Shearsmith, Mark Gatiss and Steve Pemberton. Nyman and Dyson also direct Ghost Stories.

The cast of Ghost Stories in the West End transfers from its Lyric Hammersmith run, with Simon Lipkin as Professor Goodman, Garry Cooper as Tony Matthews, Preston Nyman as Simon Rifkind and Richard Sutton as Mike Priddle.

Poltergeists, phantoms and flickers in the corner of your vision: Ghost Stories at the Ambassadors Theatre is sure to be a spine-tingling night out. Prepare to feel the thrill when it opens on 3 October 2019.
