Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s worldwide cult phenomenon, Ghost Stories, returns to the Lyric Hammersmith to test the nerve of London theatregoers.
Having enjoyed performances in the West End, China, Australia, Canada and Europe – not to mention a film adaptation – Ghost Stories is the terrifying original live show from the maniacal minds of Nyman and Dyson. Exhilarating and terrifying, Ghost Stories tickets are only for the brave – audiences should be 15 or over.
Such is the secrecy that surrounds Ghost Stories that not much is known about the show’s plot. It is, however, a rollercoaster ride – 80 minutes of shocks, surprises and secrecy. At the end of each performance, audience members are asked to keep the show’s secrets and maintain its reticent reputation.
Ghost Stories started life at the Liverpool Playhouse in 2010, before arriving at London’s Lyric Hammersmith later that year. It was last seen in London at the Arts Theatre between February 2014 and January 2015. The shocking show now returns to its original London home.
Simon Lipkin (Guys And Dolls; Avenue Q, West End) leads the Ghost Stories cast as Professor Goodman.
Andy Nyman is an award-winning actor, director and writer, most recently seen in Fiddler On The Roof (Menier Chocolate Factory/West End), Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen (West End) and Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins (Menier). He’s also Derren Brown’s long-term collaborator, having created innumerable famous TV and stage moments, including the Olivier and Drama Desk Award-winning show Secret. Dyson, meanwhile, is well known as a member of the comedy group The League Of Gentleman.
In order to keep its surprise factor at a maximum, little is disclosed by the show by means of imagery or detail – so you can expect shocks, surprises and thrills in their multitudes. Just keep telling yourself it’s only a show.
