Newest Review: ... decorated to suit the show, with a safety screen on display and scary sounds and screams coming from all directions, with random numbers scratched into the theatre walls. To my disappointment this was the most scared I was going to be all night long. I can't give away the plot of the show, as they do ask the audience to keep it a secret, however I can say that the show is JUMPY rather than ... more

I cannot express just how disappointing this show was. At no point was I or any of my party even the tiniest bit scared. We had been really looking forward to this. What a waste of time and money. To create any kind of fear, the writers need to feed the audiences imagination - this was told in a very boring university lecturer style. I have seen many shows and this is the very first I have felt let down by. No-one around us was scared either. I would have walked out in disgust but I just kept thinking that surely it must pick up soon. It didn't.

I recieved tickets to see the above show at Duke of York on St Martins Lane. Before attending I was very excited and abit scared actually, as I had been online and watched the trailor for the show.

To my disappointment this was the most scared I was going to be all night long. I can't give away the plot ... Read the complete review

I would suspect, like me, most of the people making their way into the Duke of York theatre, would have brushed off the disclaimers that adorn the tickets, websites and even the billboards outside the theatre, because how can a play be that terrifying? Well, as I have since discovered, in the time that Ghost Stories has been out and about, first at the Liverpool Playhouse, then the Lyric Hammersmith and now the Duke of York, there are numerous accounts of people leaving after ten minutes and refusing to return, people fainting and St John's Ambulance having to be on hand. I personally sunk as far down into my seat and huddled as close to my boyfriend as ... Read the complete review

This play started its life in the Liverpool Playhouse before moving to the Lyric Hammersmith, which is where I saw it. I'm not surprised to see it transfer to the West End, as it's a crowd-pleaser that should do well, and it deserves wider exposure. It's a spooky treat co-written by Jeremy Dyson of the League of Gentlemen and Andy Nyman, who has worked on Derren Brown's stuff. The play notionally takes the form of a lecture by a sceptical parapsychology professor. He sets out to convince us that ghosts don't exist by telling us three supposedly real-life ghost stories he's found in the course of his research. These form the meat of the play: three short, ...
