MELBOURNE | Do you want to hear a ghost story? You already know the answer to that question.
From one of the minds behind the BBC cult classic, The League of Gentlemen (not that Sean Connery film, relax), Jeremy Dyson, and the star of ‘Death at a Funeral’, Andy Nyman, comes Ghost Stories. It’s a play designed to frighten. The City Lane was invited to attend.
There’s a big warning when you go to buy tickets for Ghost Stories advising pregnant women not to attend. It’s an odd rule, kind of like when a restaurant sizes you up and realises that the spicy option may not be for you, but with this play, we can see why it’s justified. It’s not that it’s incredibly scary, but it does shock very very well.
It’s an innovative production built on a solid script. We don’t want to give away too much of the plot, but if you have an interest in horror thrillers, this could be the play for you. Just be prepared for a scare.
Ghost Stories plays at the National Theatre from July 26 to August 6 Mon-Sat 8pm, Wed 2pm, Sat 3pm. Tickets are $65.00 for adults and $59.00 for concession.
