The revival of Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman's horror play Ghost Stories will extend its run at the Lyric Hammersmith until 18 May.

The piece first premiered at Liverpool Playhouse in 2010 before transferring to the Lyric and to the West End in 2010, and has since been seen around the world. It returned to the West End in 2014 for a year-long run.

Nyman also starred in the film adaptation of the play, alongside Martin Freeman.

The revival's cast is composed of Simon Lipkin, Preston Nyman, Richard Sutton and Garry Cooper. 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 its 'terrifying interval-free 80 minutes represents excellent value for money.'
