The show is adapted from the hit 1990 film starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore as Sam and Molly, a couple who are mugged walking home one night.
Murdered in the attack, Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next, and unwilling to leave Molly who remains in danger. With the help of a phoney psychic Oda Mae Brown, Sam attempts to communicate with and save Molly.
Dillon and Evans join Sharon D Clarke as Oda Mae Brown and Andrew Langtree as Carl who continue in the roles they originated on stage when the production premiered. Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Bryce Pinkham, who play these roles on Broadway, were also at today's photocall.
