Critically-acclaimed smash-hit, supernatural thriller 2:22 - A Ghost Story comes to The Lowry in Salford for Halloween (October 31-November 4) – and be prepared for thrills.
During the London run even the critics have been less than brave, declaring it "genuinely chilling", "slick and clever with mounting dread" and "packed with jump scares".
Written by award-winning writer Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcast The Battersea Poltergeist, and directed by Oldham-born Matthew Dunster, it’s about a night on which secrets emerge and ghosts may or may not appear…
Jenny believes her new home is haunted, but her husband Sam doesn't. They argue with their first dinner guests, old friend Lauren and new partner Ben. Can the dead really walk again? Belief and scepticism clash, but something feels strange and frightening, and that something is getting closer, so they’re going to stay up until... 2:22. Then they’ll know.
Robins said: "Over the last year I have had so many people asking me on social media when we are going to bring 2:22 out on tour. It's a play that will make you laugh, scream, cry, think and jump out of your seat - a proper, spooky night out - and it's coming to a town near you. Do you dare come and watch?"
The Lowry is the only North-West date currently in the tour itinerary, but the show will also play the Grand Opera House in York in April-May 2024.
