About 2:22 A Ghost Story

2:22 is an award-winning play by an award-winning writer. It's all down to Danny Robins, who also created the popular BBC podcast called 'The Battersea Poltergeist'. The show's directed by Matthew Dunster.

The premiere was nominated for three Laurence Olivier Awards in 2022, including Best New Play and Best Actress. It was also nominated for four WhatsOnStage Awards, winning Best New Play, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor. No wonder this is being billed as theatreland's 'event of the year'.

Following a hugely successful run at the Noël Coward, the play transferred to the Gielgud Theatre with a new cast including Stephanie Beatriz as Lauren, James Buckley as Ben, Elliot Cowan as Sam, and Giovanna Fletcher as Jenny. The production broke all box office records for a new play at the Noel Coward, described as the theatre event of the year and the hottest ticket in the West End.
