Ghost Stories

Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s worldwide cult phenomenon Ghost Stories has enjoyed global stage and film success and now reaches Salford as part of its first ever UK Tour. The publicity promises an unsettling evening, guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat, a bold claim for a live theatre show, so what’s it all about? Is it really that scary?

Ghost Stories consists of three chilling tales introduced lecture style by an expert in the field, Professor Phillip Goodman, a parapsychologist who has devoted his life to exposing phoney psychics and explaining the reality behind fraudulent supernatural events. However, his scepticism has been tested by the three cases that we, his lecture attendees, have the ‘pleasure’ of witnessing. To say too much would spoil the evening, but as each story unfolds you are guaranteed to be on the edge of your seat and occasionally a few centimetres off it. The production cleverly makes the most of sound, lighting and staging to jangle the nerves and raise the goose bumps, with the cast of four actors ensuring we hang on their every word; and, whilst the script is surprisingly humorous, the majority of our giggling is through nerves not amusement.

This is 80 minutes of intense theatre, where expectation and anticipation alone are enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. A must see, spooky evening, but be warned – this is not for the faint-hearted!
