Ghost Stories returns to the West End in 2014
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
GHOST Stories is returning to the West End – to the Arts Theatre where it opens on February 27, 2014, following preview performances from February 13.
Restaged and reimagined by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, Ghost Stories mixes the very best of theatre with the intense buzz of a thrill-ride.
The production broke all box-office records at the Liverpool Playhouse and the Lyric Hammersmith before going on to scare over 130,000 people in London’s West End (Duke of York’s Theatre).
Jeremy Dyson has won numerous awards as the co-writer of 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 also co-wrote and co-directed Derren Brown Live, An Evening of Wonders, Enigma and Brown’s most recent live show – Infamous. And in 2005, Nyman won the Best Entertainment Olivier Award for Something Wicked This Way Comes.
Nyman’s acting credits include Channel 4’s BAFTA nominated Dead Set, Severence, the horror-comedy directed by Christopher Smith, and Kick Ass 2.
