Ghost Stories, the thriller created by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, is to scare West End theatregoers for the last time on 19 June when it closes at the Duke of York’s theatre after a year’s run at the venue.
The show, which had been booking to 1 October, began its London life at the Lyric Hammersmith in February 2010, before transferring to the West End last June. It was nominated for Best Entertainment at this year’s Olivier Awards with MasterCard.
Ghost Stories tells three chilling tales of spooky experiences, and comes with a warning that it contains “moments of extreme shock and tension”.
The show is the result of the combined talents of non-performing League Of Gentleman writer Dyson, and actor, magician and director Nyman, who co-created and directed several of illusionist Derren Brown’s stage and television shows. It is co-directed by the pair alongside Lyric Hammersmith Artistic Director Sean Holmes.
Currently no further shows are scheduled for the Duke of York’s theatre.
