Ghost Stories

Ambassadors Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Not for the faint hearted, the worldwide cult phenomenon of Ghost Stories returns to London’s West End this Autumn.

Professor Goodman will visit the Ambassadors Theatre in the West End to confirm the supernatural is PURELY a trick of the mind…

Written and directed by The League of Gentlemen’s Jeremy Dyson and the co-creator of Derren Brown’s shows Andy Nyman, Ghost Stories is an intense and terrifying theatrical experience.

Keep telling yourself it’s only a show.

Please note that there will be no re-admittance once the show has started.

GHOST STORIES is booking from 3 October 2019 until 4 January 2020 at the Ambassadors Theatre, London.


There’s something dark lurking in the theatre. Enter a nightmarish world, full of thrilling twists and turns, where all your deepest fears and disturbing thoughts are imagined live on stage.

A fully sensory and electrifying encounter, Ghost Stories is the ultimate twisted love-letter to horror and an edge-of-your-seat theatrical experience like no other. Be it phantoms, poltergeists or simply a ‘bump in the night’, let’s play a game with fear.

Are you brave enough to book?


The cast features Simon Lipkin, performing as Professor Goodman, Garry Cooper playing Tony Matthews, Preston Nyman, appearing as Simon Rifkind and Richard Sutton, playing Mike Priddle.
