Ghost Stories will bring its West End reign of terror to a close next month when the show plays its final performance at the Arts Theatre on 15 March.
Racking up close to an impressive 1,000 performances since its premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith five years ago, Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman’s spine-chilling scarefest has earned cult hit status with more than 400,000 people having seen the show worldwide.
One of Ghost Stories’ unique selling points is the top secret nature of its content. With little information available to theatregoers before they take their seats for the 80-minute fright-filled production, it offers a rare opportunity for genuine surprise and, in this case, plenty of shocks.
Speaking about the show’s forthcoming closure, Nyman commented: “When Jeremy and I first conceived Ghost Stories, we never expected that the show would go on to be a cult hit, playing all over the world, with people returning time and again to be scared out of their minds. We’re hugely proud of its success.”
Those of a nervous disposition are encouraged to think twice before booking for the show described as mixing “the very best of theatre with the intense buzz of a thrill-ride”, but if you think you’re brave enough to take up the challenge and face your fears, you still have more than a month to catch the show before its London exit.
