Ghost Stories

Ghost Stories, the West End show which has been terrifying audiences and critics alike, has extended its run at The Duke of York’s Theatre until 19th February 2011.

The production has also announced it will be putting on a special midnight performance to celebrate Halloween in its own unique style.

Tickets for the extended run and Halloween performance on 30th October are on sale today and as always, only the bravest theatre-goers are advised to book.
Having broken all box office records and following sell-out seasons at the Lyric Hammersmith and Liverpool Everyman, Ghost Stories transferred to the West End in June and has played to packed audiences ever since.

The show, which is totally unique to West End theatre, comes from the talented and dark minds of 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 and Severance; Andy also stars in the show.

Co-writers and directors, Jeremy and Andy, said: “Ghost Stories has now terrified nearly 95,000 people since it's first sell out seasons in Liverpool & Hammersmith and we are so excited to be extending the run until February. We’ve had amazing feedback from audience members and critics and now lots more people will have the chance to enjoy the shocks, scares and laughs at the show.

“We are also extremely excited to be doing the special Halloween midnight show which will be even creepier than usual! The whole of Halloween week is going to be great for us as so many people will be looking for a fun night out where they are scared senseless and Ghost Stories fits the bill perfectly. Those who are brave enough to come should book now!”

The eerie midnight performance for Halloween is unique to the West End and will be the hottest ticket in town for those who really want to get into the spooky spirit. The Duke of York’s Theatre itself is reputed to be haunted, so audience members are advised to heed the show’s warning signs and think carefully before coming along. Those who are brave enough are encouraged to don their scariest costumes for the event.

Ghost Stories also stars Nicholas Burns (Fat Pig, Comedy Theatre and E4’s Misfits); David Cardy (Treasure Island, Rose Theatre and BBC’s Silent Witness) and Ryan Gage (Royal Shakespeare Company’s Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream)

Jeremy Dyson has won numerous awards as the co-writer of the hilariously bleak The League of Gentlemen; including a Perrier Award, BAFTA Award for Best Comedy and the Golden Rose of Montreux. The stage show he co-penned, A Local Show for Local People, was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2002.

Andy Nyman is the award-winning co-writer and co-creator of the acclaimed TV productions Derren Brown - Mind Control and Trick of the Mind. He co-wrote and co-directed Derren Brown Live, An Evening of Wonders and Derren's most recent live show - Enigma. Andy also won the Best Entertainment Olivier Award in 2005 for Something Wicked This Way Comes. Andy’s acting credits include Channel 4’s BAFTA nominated Dead Set and the horror-comedy directed by Christopher Smith Severence.

Keep telling yourself it’s only a show.
