Jenny believes her new home is haunted, but her husband Sam isn’t having any of it. 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… and then they’ll know.

With Halloween around the corner, the new cast for Danny Robins’ edge-of-your-seat, supernatural thriller 2:22 – A Ghost Story. Vera Chok (Hollyoaks, Cobra) will play Lauren, Jay McGuiness (The Wanted, BIG! The Musical, Rip It Up) will play Ben, Fiona Wade (Emmerdale, Silent Witness) will play Jenny, George Rainsford (Call the Midwife, Casualty) will play Sam.

The play will arrive at The Alexandra, Birmingham from 16 to 20 January 2024.

Vera Chok (who will play Lauren) commented that: ‘Theatre brings me such joy, and I’m raring to get back on stage, and what a show to come back with! It’s going to be so fun to share 2:22, an absolute rollercoaster ride of a show, with audiences across the UK. Laughs, tension, and jump-out-of-your-seat scary – it’s going to be a Good Night Out with plenty to talk about over a bevvy after. Can’t wait to get in the room with the stellar team!’

Alongside Vera, Jay McGuinness (who will play Ben) said: ‘I went to see the play in London with Cheryl, Jake, Louise, and Scott, and immediately it was something I wanted to be a part of. Can’t wait to get stuck into this role and spend some time spooking theatres all around the UK!’

Written by award-winning writer Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcast The Battersea Poltergeist, and directed by Matthew Dunster and Isabel Marr; 2:22 is an adrenaline-filled night where secrets emerge and ghosts may, or may not, appear…

Danny Robins said: “I continue to be blown away by the success of this play. It demonstrates a huge appetite and curiosity for all things paranormal. 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. It’s always exciting to see the play come to life again in this way. It’s such a fun night out, and if chills give you thrills you’re in for a treat.”

What do you believe? And do you dare discover the truth?

“There’s something in our house. I hear it every night, at the same time.
