If you love chills and thrills, you’ll have to check out the upcoming stage play, Ghost Stories. The two-time Olivier Award nominee is coming to Melbourne, after haunting the UK with its terrifying twists and turns. Brought to you by Realscape Productions, the same team behind the immersive Darkfield experiences, the nightmarish world of Ghost Stories is something you won’t forget anytime soon. See it, if you dare, at Melbourne’s Athenaeum Theatre from Friday September 16 to Saturday October 22.
Written and directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, Ghost Stories is a fully sensory and electrifying experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Leading the show will be playwright and actor Steve Rodgers (Savage River, Kenny) in the role of Professor Phillip Goodman. He will be joined on stage by Jay Laga’aia (Star Wars, Play School, Once), Darcy Brown (Peddling, Animal Farm) and Nick Simpson-Deeks (Winners and Losers, The Circuit, Falsettos).
“To immerse audiences in an emotional rollercoaster live on stage, you need an exceptionally talented cast,” said Amy Johnson, producer at Realscape Productions. “Steve, Jay, Darcy and Nick each bring an exciting depth to their roles that we cannot wait to see live on stage.”
While the plot is held behind a veil of secrecy to keep you feeling uncertain and unsettled, you can be promised moments of laughter and terror. The show will last for 90 minutes, with no interval, and audience members should be over the age of 15.
Tickets for Ghost Stories are on sale now. It will play at the Athenaeum Theatre from September 16 to October 22. After that, it will move on to Adelaide’s Dunstan Playhouse from December 7 to 31.
