Ghost Stories has extended its run at the Arts Theatre, announcing it will return after a short break this summer to play from 21 September to 18 January 2015.
The scaretastic production, which will likely chill you to the bone even during London’s current scorching heatwave, will run until 17 August before heading off for a summer sabbatical while Denise Van Outen’s one-woman show Some Girl I Used To Know plays a limited run at the Leicester Square venue from 22 August to 13 September.
Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s hit show has enjoyed huge success since it first premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith in 2010. Met with critical acclaim, the secretive show quickly transferred into the West End and has since been seen around the world before making its much welcome London return at the Arts Theatre earlier this year.
Described as mixing “the very best of theatre with the intense buzz of a thrill ride”, the heart-pounding stories and events that unfold during the production are a closely guarded secret to all but those who have experienced the tense, immersive show.
Writing about Ghost Stories’ return in February, Official London Theatre’s Kate Stanbury warned audience members to “Prepare yourself – and the person sitting next to you – for 80 minutes of hide-behind-your-hands horror”, while the Daily Telegraph’s Charles Spencer said: “If you don’t leave the theatre feeling shaken, stirred and thoroughly entertained then I can only applaud you for having nerves of steel.”
