GHOST STORIES has been a huge hit on the West End stage in London, the movie itself was pretty good too. In fact the film stuck pretty closely to what you get in the theatre. It is that audience experience which makes this show all the more scary.
Now, the international stage phenomenon, direct from the West-End, is heading our way. After exhilarating audiences across the world with record breaking, sell-out productions and a smash hit film, Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s worldwide cult phenomenon Ghost Stories will thrill the New Theatre Cardiff for the first time ever.
This is difficult for us to write about because we really don’t want to give anything away. We always think going into these shows with less information enhances the experience.
We can tell you though, there will be something dark lurking in the theatre.

A fully sensory and electrifying encounter, GHOST STORIES is the ultimate twisted love-letter to horror and an edge-of-your-seat theatrical experience like no other. Be it phantoms, poltergeists or simply a ‘bump in the night’, you get to play a game with fear.
Martin Freeman starred in the movie version and was one of those attending the spine-tingling, fantastically terrifying Gala Night in London.
