Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the theatre, Ghost Stories returns to London, more intense than ever before.

“Transferring from the Lyric Hammersmith, this is the perfect Halloween treat. Like the Woman in Black, its continuing popularity proves that there’s something uniquely chilling about live performance that aims to scare.”


Ghost Stories broke all box-office records at the Liverpool Playhouse and the Lyric Hammersmith before moving into the West End for a 13 month run. Since the West End it has also been produced in Toronto and Moscow, in total it has now scared over 300,000 people worldwide.

A truly terrifying theatrical experience written and directed by The League of Gentlemen's master of the macabre, Jeremy Dyson, and Andy Nyman, co-creator and director of Derren Brown's television and stage shows and star of Dead Set, Severance and Kick Ass 2.

Ghost Stories mixes the very best of theatre with the buzz of a thrill-ride, delivering something truly unique. With some new moments of shock, this revival promises more jolts than ever. You haven’t seen horror, until you’ve seen it live…

Critic reviews

With enough jump scares to keep the audience on the edge of their seats throughout

West End Wilma

The 80-minute straight-through show is filled to the brim with scrumptious spookiness

Broadway World

It’s the suspense that this production utilises so well, we all know what we’re there for, and the hooded figure leaning menacingly over the canopy of the theatre leaves us in no doubt that this won’t be your average trip to the theatre

Theatre Weekly

Ghoulishness and droll surprises in returning cult horror show

Evening Standard (from Hammersmith run)

Bad dreams guaranteed by this horribly clever show

The Times (from Hammersmith run)

An evening that succeeds triumphantly in making the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, and the pit of your stomach lurch uncomfortably

WhatsOnStage (from Hammersmith run)

The tension emanating from my companion was palpable

Time Out (from Hammersmith run)
