Final night time, I had absolutely the pleasure of attending an evening on the theatre to see one in all our Potter favorites carry out in his latest enterprise. Tom Felton is starring as Sam in 2:22 A Ghost Story, as beforehand introduced by MuggleNet, and wow, did his efficiency shine regardless of the play’s darkish material.
2:22 A Ghost Story is a play written by Danny Robins that facilities on Jenny, Sam, and their daughter Phoebe. Sam has been away on a visit, and Jenny has been left alone of their new home. Whereas she’s been alone, she’s skilled some unusual issues taking place each night time at (you guessed it) 2:22. When Sam arrives dwelling, his skepticism leads him and Jenny, and their two mates to say up till 2:22 in order that Sam can see for himself.
This play felt like a horror movie, however it was hilarious in a laugh-out-loud means. I’m not a fan of horror or suspense, however I loved myself immensely. All the pieces labored collectively to create an atmosphere crammed to the brim with stress. The set design instantly made you’re feeling uneasy with using excessive ceilings and lots of empty house. It didn’t assist that the skylights constructed into the set all the time made you assume somebody was watching. Perhaps they had been.
I believed it might be exhausting for me to see Tom Felton as another person as a result of, in my head, he has all the time been Draco Malfoy. However he embodied the position of Sam completely. I do know he received some recommendation from former Potter co-stars. The entire solid, which included Mandip Gill (Yaz from Physician Who), labored seamlessly collectively. I felt like I used to be peeking in on an actual group of mates spending the night time collectively. There have been moments of inside jokes and laughter and moments of real-life issues and altercations. All the pieces felt very pure, which isn’t one thing I see in lots of performs. Even the moments of unsaid phrases nonetheless conveyed a great deal of that means. What was most spectacular was how plausible it was. You stroll into the theatre a skeptic, however you’re a believer by the point you allow.
I may go on and on and rave about this play. I did no prior analysis as a result of I wished to be stunned, and I like to recommend that to anybody who can see it. It actually is among the finest items of theatre I’ve seen in a very long time. Performs are exhausting! There aren’t any musical numbers to spice issues up; you must depend on the appearing alone. Tom and the entire solid offered the present to me within the first 5 minutes. It’s rather a lot to hold, and so they did it very properly.
You probably have the chance to see 2:22 A Ghost Story, I extremely counsel you do. Even in case you don’t like ghost tales (like me), I feel you’ll discover it’s actually not nearly a haunted home. It’s about a lot greater than that. It’s about believing.
