 West End Hit Set To Terrify Newcastle Audiences

Ghost Stories 

Newcastle Theatre Royal 

Tuesday 22 – Saturday 26 April 2025

After exhilarating audiences across the globe with record breaking, sell-out productions and a smash hit film, the Olivier-award nominated, supernatural sensation, Ghost Stories “An immaculately crafted evening of entertainment” (Time Out) will be visiting Newcastle Theatre Royal.

Now even more spine-tingling and terrifying than ever, the production was last seen in the UK in 2019 when the show celebrated its latest West End Run. Following this, it embarked on a UK tour in early 2020, which was cut short by the pandemic.

When Professor Goodman, arch-sceptic out to debunk the paranormal, embarks on an investigation of three apparent hauntings – as recounted by a night-watchman, a teenage boy, and a businessman awaiting his first child – Goodman finds himself at the outer limits of rationality, and fast running out of explanations.


Enter a world full of thrilling twists and epic turns, where the ultimate love-letter to horror is imagined live on stage. A fully sensory and electrifying encounter, Ghost Stories is one of London’s best reviewed plays of all time and will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat. This is a theatrical experience like no other.

After exhilarating audiences across the world with record breaking, sell-out productions and a smash hit film, Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s Ghost Stories is "Genuine scary fun” (Sunday Times), a worldwide phenomenon more spine-tingling and fantastically terrifying than ever. 

Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman say of the return of their celebrated terrifying tales: “We are beyond excited that Ghost Stories will be scaring the hell out of audiences around the country in its first ever full national tour. It’s fifteen years since we first brought screams, laughs, jumps and killer twists to the theatre and we can’t wait to do it again. Are you brave enough to book?” 

2018 saw the release of the film version of Ghost Stories. Based on their own play, the film was written and directed by Andy and Jeremy, and its cast included Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther and Paul Whitehouse. The film has been hailed as a ‘Modern Horror Classic’ and was voted number 16 in Empire magazines list ‘The Greatest 25 Horror films ever made’.

Andy Nyman is a multi-award-winning actor, director and writer who has earned acclaim from both critics and audiences for his work in theatre, film, and television. This year he will be starring opposite Imelda Staunton at the London Palladium in Hello, Dolly! and his extensive television credits include The Capture and Unforgotten as well as a highly acclaimed performance as Winston Churchill in Peaky Blinders. Later this year Andy can be seen playing Gov. Thropp in the anticipated blockbuster film WICKED.


Jeremy Dyson is best known as the co-creator and co-writer of the multi-award-winning comedy show The League of Gentlemen. His play Ghost Stories, co-written with Andy Nyman was nominated for an Olivier award, and has enjoyed three separate West End runs since debuting in 2010.

Jeremy has worked as script editor on numerous award-winning TV comedies including Bad Education and Tracey Ullman’s Show and has written for many other TV shows including Killing Eve and Good Omens. His latest book, The Warlock Effect co-written with Andy Nyman was published in 2023.

Please be advised that Ghost Stories contains moments of extreme shock and tension. The show is unsuitable for anyone under the age of 15. We strongly advise those of a nervous disposition to think very seriously before attending.


Ghost Stories plays Newcastle Theatre Royal Tuesday 22 – Saturday 26 April 2025. Tickets can be purchased at or from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 0191 232 7010.
