Lily Allen is due to make her West End stage debut this summer in the world premiere of new play 2:22 - A Ghost Story at the Noël Coward Theatre on 3rd August. Lily Allen will star as Jenny alongside Hadley Fraser (City of Angels) as Sam, Julia Chan (Silent House and Katy Keene) who will play Lauren and Jake Wood (EastEnders) playing Ben in this new supernatural thriller by Danny Robins (The Battersea Poltergeist podcast) directed by Matthew Dunster (Very Very Very Dark Matter, Hangmen and True West).

“There’s something in our house. I hear it every night, at the same time." 

Lily Allen said: "I am so excited about getting to work on this play! The live performance aspect of my career has always been the most thrilling part for me, connecting with a group of individuals and the spontaneity of whatever happens on the night. I feel that stepping into this play is an exciting natural extension of that and affords me the best of all worlds. I get to explore mature subject matter, be a woman with a real point of view and show the West End audiences how much I love live performance and being in front of an audience. I can’t wait!

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."

This supernatural thriller will be sure to have you on the edge of your seat and with one eye open at night. What do you believe? And do you dare discover the truth?
