2:22 A Ghost Story

The new stage phenomenon that has taken the West End by storm now comes to Northampton

Winner of BEST NEW PLAY at the Whatsonstage Awards, this edge-of-your-seat, supernatural thriller stars Jay McGuiness (The Wanted, BIG! The Musical, Rip It Up), Fiona Wade (Emmerdale, Silent Witness), George Rainsford (Call the Midwife, Casualty) and Vera Chok (Hollyoaks, Cobra).

Written by Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcasts Uncanny & The Battersea Poltergeist, 2:22 A Ghost Story comes fresh from record-breaking seasons at five West End theatres with a host of acclaimed star performances. It’s a brilliantly funny and adrenaline-filled night where secrets emerge and ghosts may or may not appear… What do you believe? And do you dare discover the truth?


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 scepticism 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.

We attended the Press Night and within minutes we were instantly gripped by this intensely thrilling piece of theatre. The cast for this UK Tour is an excellent choice, they all seamlessly deliver a very well written story. This is matched with a stunning stage design and impressive lighting and sound effects which significantly add to the on stage emotion. This production truly keeps you on the edge of your seats throughout the entire performance and should not be missed.

2:22 A Ghost Story is at Northampton's Royal & Derngate Theatre until Saturday 13th January.
