About this deal

If I’d had great shows like this visiting my local theatre when I was growing up, things would have been very different for me! Well, I was going to say "until they re-stage 2:22, or make a movie/TV version, this is the next best thing". But there are genuinely chilling moments, scary enough that the whole theatre is tense and pin-drop quiet. For Robins, the scares come from keeping things grounded and having the characters drive the story – that’s why he cites films like “The Babadook” or the long-running play “The Woman in Black” as resonating with him. Opinions on the subject are divided, but conflicts are inflamed by male egos, class resentments and simmering jealousies.

But we’re all passionate about theatre and we all work hard to share that passion with you and the world’s online community.The tour cast includes Joe Absolom as Ben, Charlene Boyd as Lauren, Nathanial Curtis as Sam, and Louisa Lytton as Jenny until 2 December.

However I was pleasantly surprised to discover it is now being shown in my home city later this year, tickets already booked. This fabulous 7th cast for the 2024 leg of the tour will bring their own energy to these characters, telling the story anew for audiences across the UK. The problem with the characters is that beyond their importance to the situation, they have little other to make them sympathetic or compelling.The jump scares and Chris Fisher’s impressive if underused illusions aside, this is intriguing rather than terrifying. When I eventually saw the play, I was sat next to friends who had already seen it, and I asked them to squeeze my leg before every scary bit.

It's best to let the it all wash over you while reading rather than trying to figure out where it's going. It’s not scary enough for nightmares, but the sense of dread you may leave with goes to show that no matter how rational the explanation, it can’t defy gut feelings. A holistic solution for event organizers to market and manage their token-gated events, all in one place. Norwich Theatre Royal, Playhouse and Stage Two are part of Norwich Theatre, the operating name of Theatre Royal (Norwich) Trust Limited. It then transferred to the Gielgud Theatre for 10 weeks, starring Stephanie Beatriz, James Buckley, Elliot Cowan, and Giovanna Fletcher, which completed its run on 12 February 2021.The various London casts have often featured some left-field choices, but here we are largely in the time-honoured touring realm of faces recognisable from TV. We sat down with the pair to talk about a horror fan’s dream play, whether they believe in ghosts and heading out on tour. I also think about people in my own life who are similar to the character of Ben and mash it all up together. The characters feel honest and humanly flawed, they remain likeable even as they say awful things to each other.
