Spooky show survives after surge

Published 3 June 2011

Ghost Stories, the scream-tastic show currently terrifying audiences at the Duke Of York’s theatre, has added a surprise extension to its London run.

The pulse-racing play had announced earlier this year that it would end its flesh-creeping London engagement later this month. Yet since that announcement, demand for tickets has leapt higher than one of Ghost Stories’s own shocked audience members and the Olivier Award-nominated production has lengthened its run until 16 July.

The scintillatingly scary show, which is written by The League Of Gentlemen’s Jeremy Dyson and actor/magician Andy Nyman, was first seen in London at the Lyric Hammersmith, where it proved such a hit that it transferred to the West End.

Though London’s horror fans are set to say goodbye to Ghost Stories later this summer, fans of spine-tinglers around the UK should prepare to squeal with both delight and fear as a nationwide tour is being planned.
