Previously playing to packed audiences at the Lyric Hammersmith and Duke of York’s Theatre, Ghost Stories returns once again to the West End. This time it appears at the Arts Theatre from February 2014 and it is likely to find a large audience. After all, it has received critical praise at its former locations and it is certain to match this as it finds a new home.
Ghost Stories carries a warning due to its moments of shock and tension and this is because it does exactly what it says on the tin – it is a show that features an array of spooky stories that also feature humour to go along with the scares. The result is a fun and compelling ride, complete with the kind of shocks that makes it instantly memorable. So it is no wonder that it has been met with widespread acclaim and its original run at the Lyric Hammersmith drummed up a lot of interest prior to its original West End run.
But Ghost Stories is not just well known for its content, it is also well known for its writing and directing team of Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, the former being an integral part of The League of Gentlemen and the latter a star of shows like Dead Set. They have both put pen to paper on the show and direct it alongside Sean Holmes to bring a unique voice to the London theatre scene.
Jeremy Dyson is a member of The League of Gentlemen alongside Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Reece Sheersmith and together they have dominated various formats, including radio, television and film. But in addition to his work with them he also created the television series Funland and put pen to paper on novels such as Never Trust a Rabbit, What Happens Now and The Cranes that Build the Cranes.
Meanwhile, Andy Nyman is an actor who has appeared on British television in the likes of Dead Set, the zombie television show from writer Charlie Brooker, and Death At A Funeral from director Frank Oz. He received acclaim for his work as a co-writer and co-creator of Derren Brown’s television series and his stage shows, the most recent of which was Infamous, which played at the Palace Theatre during the summer of 2013.
Ghost Stories is at the Arts Theatre from Thursday 27th February 2014 (with previews from Thursday 13th February 2014).
