2:22 is a show which keeps you guessing throughout, it’s satisfying to watch whether you know the ending from a previous visit, or not. It’s compelling, hilarious, and surprisingly foxy. Robins’ impeccable writing contains all the aspects of a great thriller and properly fleshed-out characters. Long may 2:22 A Ghost Story continue its domination of the West End stage(s).

This is a superior, knowing piece of genre drama, well-executed, and buoyed up by Allen’s star power and skill. A great, spine-tingling night out.

For a previous production

Dunster directs ... with a macabre playfulness that comes to the fore in Ian Dickinson’s magnificently unsettling sound design. There’s no denying that Allen is the one who’ll put bums on seats. But ‘2:22’ is a rare ... example of a Good West End Ghost Play.
