Along with the album's announcement, the elemental Canadian trio have shared the video for single i felt a funeral. Above it all hovers a menacing red digital clock that counts down to the titular 2:22 with a perpetual dread. One of my favourite things about this production is the way lighting and sound design is used to immerse the audience. 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.

So to sum up – if you’re a thrill seeker, a ghost story lover or enjoy sitting on the edge of your seat this show is definitely worth seeing.Robins admits he’s a bit caught off-guard by the success of the show, especially because horror is a genre that rarely garners respect. This print version, complete with a wonderful introduction similar and yet distinct to the one in my Playbill, introduced me to the British original and even more emphasized how much I would fantasize about directing it.

For the first season at the Criterion (May – September 2022), the cast included Tom Felton, Mandip Gill, Sam Swainsbury, and Beatriz Romilly, the second season, launching in September, starred Laura Whitmore, Matt Willis, Felix Scott, and Tamsin Carroll. 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. After the altercation, Lauren has a private conversation with Sam where she confesses to having doused Phoebe's toy in spirit in an attempt to prove Sam (and his constant need to provide a scientific explanation for everything) wrong, and also confesses that she has loved him since their university days.Scary enough, perhaps, to have you turn on the light the next time you hear an unusual sound at night, just to check the time. Without going into any detail, there are, unsurprisingly, twists in the plot, but these are neither startlingly original nor that difficult to predict; much of the fun comes from spotting the clues that are carefully laid beforehand. On 29 March 2022, the new cast was announced, starring Tom Felton as Sam, Mandip Gill as Jenny, Beatriz Romilly as Lauren and Sam Swainsbury as Ben.

On Friday 21 July it was announced that Sophia Bush had withdrawn from the production due to health reasons and that Frankie Bridge will be taking over the role of Lauren from August. It's a great play, the combination of a creepy ghost-story and somewhat of a social commentary, all of which made a little more sense having read the introduction and paid attention to the stage directions which made me realise there were things I'd missed during the performance. Written by Danny Robins, creator of the hit BBC podcasts Uncanny and The Battersea Poltergeist, 2:22 A Ghost Story comes To Theatre Royal Brighton with actor Joe Absolom taking centre stage in this edge-of-your-seat, supernatural thriller.The book has a note which says it went to press before rehearsals were finished so it may differ slightly, but I remember it to be the same except possibly in two small scenes.
