Haunting pyschological thriller Ghost Stories to tour Australia from July

It horrified London, petrified Sydney and now this haunting thriller is coming for you.

Seen by over half a million people worldwide, Ghost Stories is a truly terrifying theatrical experience that will make you laugh and scream in equal measures.

Not for the faint hearted (seriously, read the disclaimer), Ghost Stories will tour Geelong, Adelaide, Melbourne, Wagga Wagga, Canberra and Perth from July until the beginning of October. Tickets for the majority of the tour are now on sale, with Canberra shows going on sale next week (8th Feb).

Written by the masters of the macabre, Jeremy Dyson (The League of Gentleman) and Andy Nyman (star of ‘Death at a Funeral’ & writer of the Derren Brown shows), Ghost Stories combines the very best of live theatre with all the thrills of a great horror film. Despite being blood and gore free, this 80-minute drama will take you on a chilling journey that you’ll never forget.

Originally produced by the Liverpool Playhouse & Lyric Hammersmith (UK), Ghost Stories then transferred to London’s West End. This production has since been spooking theatregoers in Toronto, Moscow and Sydney, and it’s time for the rest of Australia to laugh and scream in equal measures.

Despite over half a million people seeing the play, details of its plot and storyline are shrouded in secrecy. So there’s only one way to know what it’s about… and that is to see it for yourself.
