News: 2:22 to return to the West End

Runaway Entertainment today announces the return of 2:22 – A Ghost Story to London’s West End. Running for a strictly limited 10-week season at the Gielgud Theatre, where the second cast of the show performed in 2020/21, the season also runs concurrently with the hugely successful and record-breaking UK tour which concludes in Salford in June, and a Dublin season at 3Olympia Theatre, which will perform from 20 June –  22 August. This means that the shows will be running concurrently in Manchester, then Dublin and London!

Previews at the Gielgud Theatre start on 25 May and the run will end on 4 August. Tickets go on general sale on Wednesday 24 April.

At the time of announcing 2:22 A Ghost Story has been seen by over 690,000 people in 18 UK cities including London, plus international seasons in LA and Melbourne. This second Gielgud Theatre run will be the show’s 7th West End season.

Written by award-winning writer Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcast The Battersea Poltergeist, and directed by Matthew Dunster and Isabel Marr; 2:22 is an adrenaline-filled night where secrets emerge and ghosts may, or may not, appear…

They’re already playing up the show’s reputation for some of the more outlandish casting announcements this side of Chicago but in reality, looking at the list below in totality, it isn’t really that deserved, there’s been some really decent acting talent involved in several of the companies alongside the wildcards of the likes of Cheryl and Laura Whitmore.

So who knows who will end up watching the clock tick down again, and I suspect there’ll be at least one headline-snatching name, but here’s hoping that balance is maintained once again.
