GHOST STORIES Returns to the West End, Beginning Tonight at the Arts Theatre
The terrifying theatrical event - GHOST STORIES - is set to scare West End audiences more than ever before when it opens at London's Arts Theatre from tonight, 13 February 2014.
Restaged and reimagined by THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN'S master of macabre, Jeremy Dyson, and Andy Nyman, co-creator and director of Derren Brown's television and stage shows and star of DEAD SET, SEVERENCE and KICK ASS 2, GHOST STORIES mixes the very best of theatre with the intense buzz of a thrill-ride.
GHOST STORIES 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.
Jeremy Dyson has won numerous awards as the co-writer of the hilariously bleak 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 co-wrote and co-directed Derren Brown LIVE, AN EVENING OF WONDERS, ENIGMA and Derren's most recent live show - INFAMOUS. Andy also won the Best Entertainment Olivier Award in 2005 for SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. Andy's acting credits include Channel 4's BAFTA nominated DEAD SET, the horror-comedy directed by Christopher Smith SEVERENCE and KICK ASS 2.
