'I'd get freaked out here, alone in the dark. Wondering what's lurking at the bottom of the bed, ready to grab your feet'
Jenny and Sam and their baby Phoebe have recently moved into their new home.
But something feels frightening and wrong
Over the baby monitor - at 2:22 every night - Jenny hears footsteps around her daughter's cot
Could the house be haunted?
When their friends Lauren and Ben come round for a housewarming dinner, they drink wine, relive their pasts, and argue about the existence of ghosts
They decide to stay up until 2:22, hoping to discover the truth
Over one adrenaline-filled night, as the foxes scream outside, secrets will emerge
And ghosts may appear…
Spine-chilling, funny and scary, Danny Robins' play 2:22 was premiered at the Noël Coward Theatre in London's West End in August 2021, directed by Matthew Dunster, and starring Lily Allen, Julia Chan, Hadley Fraser and Jake Wood.
It provides rich opportunities for any drama group wanting to make things go bump in the night
And make their audiences scream!
"Danny’s play is a brilliant investigation into the ghosts that haunt us and the how’s and why's they come to be. It’s everything I love; wit, a meditation on marriage and relationships and family all hinging on a frightening plot. Matthew is an amazing director who has worked with some of the coolest material theatre has to offer. I'm a fan of what he does, and so honoured that he asked me to come on board" ~ Llly Allen
“I’m so excited to be directing this play. A unique combination of horror and social commentary. Danny has really come up with something special and scary for audiences to experience together as they return to the theatre ... There’s a real surprise waiting for audiences” ~ Matthew Dunster, Director
