About this deal

What unfolds is a tense but thoughtful – and often humorous – evening as the friends reveal their own beliefs and encounters. But lucky Angelenos don’t have to hop an international flight to catch the show, which was nominated for best new play at this year’s Lawrence Olivier Awards, as a special engagement is currently on through Dec. The couple hosts a dinner party for Lauren, an old university friend of Sam's, and Ben, her new boyfriend who has a belief in the supernatural. It’s such a heightened, emotional role for me to play as I also recently became a mum, and there was so much I could relate to. I think this is a book that is best being actually read as a play/seen as a play, instead being read on your own like an actual book.

He’s also adapting “The Battlesea Poltergeist” for Blumhouse and working on a book based on his series “Uncanny” that should be due out next fall. The first half definitely showed signs of a new show opening with cues slightly missed and relationships not fully formed but the cast and writing settled in during act 2. Joe Absolom: What I enjoy most about touring is the interaction with the audience and bringing a great performance to new people.The genre is much more at home in the pitch dark of movie houses, where viewers can scream anonymously while comforting themselves with fistfuls of buttered popcorn. We acknowledge the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council (OAC), Ontario Creates, the Government of Ontario, and the Government of Canada for our publishing activities. Aaron Sorkin’s hit Broadway stage adaptation of Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ shapes the classic 1960 novel for a new era.

Nathaniel: I do not believe in ghosts, and frankly, if I did, I wouldn’t be able to do the show because I’d freak myself out too much. It draws more obviously on the tradition of recent horror movies rather than theatre; instead of concentrating on building up a spooky atmosphere, it relies heavily on jump scares. The characters feel honest and humanly flawed, they remain likeable even as they say awful things to each other.I’ve been a huge fan of Danny Robins for a while now so this is a part and an opportunity I cannot wait to get started on. And now, in an unlikely, or inspired piece of casting, the latest cast at the Lyric Theatre includes none other than Cheryl, yes Cheryl of Girls Aloud fame!
