2:22 A Ghost Story – are ghosts real?

With Halloween upon us there are many events happening within London bringing us spookiness to the City. To get into the real spirit of October I went along to see a spooky play in the West End called 2:22 A Ghost Story within The Criteron Theatre. The play focusses on a couple who purchase a new home which an elderly couple used to live in, however things within the house are not quite right, the question is have they a ghost in the house?

The play really is an insight to those who believe in ghosts and those who don’t, as the sceptics always think there has to be a logical explanation be it science or something else.

What is a ghost though? Well it is a soul or a spirit of a dead person or even an animal who has not passed onto heaven or hell and stays within our world as a ghost. Ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible with lifelike forms. Ghosts have been believed by many for a very long time. Ghosts are generally described as solitary, human-like essences, but on a occasion there are more evil presences which are classed as poltergeist. Ghosts generally also are believed to haunt particular locations which meant something to them, for instance where they grew up.

Not everyone believes ghosts though and there is an overwhelming consensus of science which can proof the unusual happenings that someone might mistake for being a ghost. For instance despite centuries of investigation, there is no scientific evidence that any location is inhabited by spirits of the dead. It is said that many plants, drugs and the environment are usually the link to illusions making your imagination run wild.

As a fan of theatre, Halloween and horror I was kindly invited down courtesy by the PR team to see 2:22 A Ghost Story.
