Ghost StoriesFollowing a phenomenally successful run at the Lyric Hammersmith and a West End transfer Ghost Stories comes to the Arts Theatre. Not suitable for those of a nervous disposition, Ghost Stories takes the audience on a psychological thriller via a series of short stories strung together by academic presenter, Professor Philip Goodman (played by Andy Nyman, co-creator of Derren Brown's stage and TV shows). Written and directed by Nyman and the League of Gentlemen's Jeremy Dyson, Ghost Stories is a selection of creepy tales and some truly scary stuff - it certainly gives you plenty of paranormal things to think about. The element of the unknown is a big part of the fear factor so we won't give too much away. All we will say is that this is a play which teasingly questions the existence of ghosts, and gives enough evidence to leave you pondering - and slightly spooked. You may notice your step quicken on the walk home after dark. Check out our scarily good deals.

 

About Arts Theatre

The Arts Theatre was built in 1927 as a members club, which allowed it to circumvent the censorship laws and perform unusual and avant garde fare. One of the smallest West End theatres, it has retained its reputation for short runs of innovative and controversial productions. More about Arts Theatre
