About this deal

The spooky atmosphere is set from the start with a digital clock circling through the hours until it hits 2:22 with a startling red light and bloodcurdling scream putting you on edge from the start. His blue-collar believer is at turns dryly funny, wearily indignant, and vociferously committed to the things he is certain are true.

provides rich opportunities for any drama group wanting to make things go bump in the night - and their audiences scream.As well as relocating to various theatres around the West End (the Lyric is its new home), the play is on its fifth new cast. And the big question that radiates throughout the whole play hits wonderfully: do you believe in ghosts? The problem with the characters is that beyond their importance to the situation, they have little other to make them sympathetic or compelling. Any fan of theatre, ghost stories, or good art should read this play, but it's even better on-stage. On hearing that his wife genuinely believes the house to be haunted by a presence that means them harm for disrespecting the history of the house, Sam the cynic, who believes science has an answer to everything, questions Jen’s sanity.

Currently, Robins is tinkering with a film adaptation of “2:22” and in the midst of Season 2 of “The Witch Farm. It’s a sin star Nathaniel Curtis and EastEnders Louisa Lytton head to Norwich Theatre Royal in the spine-tingling play 2:22 A Ghost Story. We hear JENNY leave the room, then the monitor emits the beeps that show it’s run out of battery and goes dead. What unfolds is a tense but thoughtful – and often humorous – evening as the friends reveal their own beliefs and encounters.He also begins to wonder whether she, rather than the potential ghostly presence in the nursery, is a threat to their baby. From 5 January 2024 the cast will feature Vera Chok as Lauren, Jay McGuiness as Ben, George Rainsford as Sam and Fiona Wade as Jenny, with their first performance at Royal and Derngate, Northampton. Director Matthew Dunster has successfully created a atmospheric sense of expectation and the potential threat of menace is present from the off. The conversations feel like real debates- clear when the characters care for the others opinions and when they don’t. The book has a note which says it went to press before rehearsals were finished so it may differ slightly, but I remember it to be the same except possibly in two small scenes.
