Ghost Stories returned to the theatre it originally opened at last week, starring Simon Lipkin in the role originally played by Andy Nyman.

Jeremy Dyson and Nyman's horror play originally opened at the Lyric Hammersmith in 2010 before transferring to the West End.

The likes of Martin Freeman, Reece Shearsmith and Derren Brown turned up to celebrate the return of the show.


Preston Nyman also stars in the piece as Simon Rifkind, Richard Sutton as Mike Priddle and Garry Cooper as Tony Matthews. Ghost Stories revolves around a lecture on supernatural experiences and is unsuitable for anyone under the age of 15.

In a four star review for WhatsOnStage, Alun Hood said it's 'terrifying interval-free 80 minutes represents excellent value for money.'
