BWW Review: GHOST STORIES, Ambassadors Theatre Photo BWW Review: GHOST STORIES, Ambassadors Theatre

The extraordinary success of Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman's Ghost Stories back at the Lyric Hammersmith in 2010 led to multiple runs in London, a film starring Martin Freeman, Paul Whitehouse, and Alex Lawter, and a number of tours and productions all over the world. It's easy to see how the piece achieved all that. The 80-minute straight-through show is filled to the brim with scrumptious spookiness. Directors Dyson, Nyman, and Sean Holmes start playing with their public from the outset of their experience, restricting the information on plot and presentation to a minimum on marketing material and website, daring them to book if they dare.

Expect lots of frights and surprises in this production, as the hit from 10 years ago makes its way back to where it all started. After many transfers, tours and a well-received film, Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman's horror tale seems scarier than ever.
