2:22 A Ghost Story announces West End return and casting details

2:22 A Ghost Story has announced its return to the West End – and this is how to get tickets.

The award-winning show will open at London’s Gielgud Theatre on 25 May alongside its UK and Ireland tour.

It’s also been confirmed that the West End run will star Stacey Dooley and James Buckley as Jenny and Ben.

Written by Danny Robins and directed by Matthew Dunster and Isabel Marr, the thriller revolves around a woman named Jenny, who believes she is being haunted at 2:22am every night.

Dooley said: “Delighted to be involved in the next adaptation of 2:22! I fell for the play when I went to watch it in 2022. All four characters feel so familiar, which means the subtle ‘ghost story’ just works so brilliantly. Can’t wait to bring Jenny back to life! Let’s go!”
