Thrilling, Entertaining, Absorbing, Clever

See it if Very good twist at the end that I certainly wasn’t expecting.

Don't see it if I can’t say anything bad. Just a couple of times I struggled to hear but nothing to worry about.

“Without getting too carried away, it’s Cheryl – whoo-hoo – who has opened a portal to another world of possibility. ”

“The production ultimately succeeds not because of its ramped up comedy but in spite of it. It will surely win audiences once again: it has entertainment value.”

“As Dunster’s production has churned through its various casts, it has started to feel sloppier, more faded, a ghost of its original.”

"Danny Robins’s gripping ghost story is as verbally spiky as it is psychologically astute."

“If this is the result when casting a ‘personality’ brings bums to seats during a time when theatres need all the help they can get, then fair play – it's clearly a gambit that's working.”

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.

For a previous production

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.
