Ghost Stories, Ambassadors Theatre - ★★★★ - Until January 4, 2020


Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever had a supernatural experience? No? Well this may be your opportunity. Ghost Stories is designed to make you re-examine your beliefs about the supernatural. This is a fun and scary experience which gives you a chance to participate in the stories of others' encounters with the world beyond while having a lot of laughs along the way. We get an academic's rational approach framing three tales which could make your hair stand on end and then a truly shocking climax to this trip into the unknown. Writers Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman have crafted a clever script which keeps the audience totally enthralled and off balance. There's no way you can guess what is to come. The cast do a fine job of luring us into the horrors of their worlds and strike just the right balance of credibility and credulity. Simon Lipkin does a convincing job as the professorial ghost buster, Professor Goodman and Garry Cooper creates a completely believable night watchman beset by some unusual problems. Preston Nyman makes us all identify with the experience of being stranded on a dark road late at night and Richard Sutton is right on as the self-important businessman who gets more than he bargained for. This is a thoroughly enjoyable night in the theatre with some suitably chilling moments. It could be great date night that will more than break the ice.
