Written by Danny Robins and directed by Matthew Dunster, the play will begin previews Oct. 29 and run through Dec. 4 following an award-winning run in London.
The nonprofit theater company has set Constance Wu, Finn Wittrock, Anna Camp and Adam Rothenberg to star in 2:22 — A Ghost Story, a four-person play described as an “intriguing, funny and scary supernatural thriller.” Previews at CTG’s Ahmanson Theatre begin Oct. 29 with an official opening set for Nov. 4. The play will then run through Dec. 4.
Written by Danny Robins and directed by Matthew Dunster, A Ghost Story follows Jenny (Wu) who believes her new home is haunted while her husband Sam (Wittrock) isn’t having any of it. They argue with their first dinner guests, an old friend Lauren (Camp) and her new partner Ben (Rothenberg), and after a conversation about beliefs and skepticism, the foursome make a pact to stay up until 2:22 a.m. to know for sure.
The production marks Ahmanson stage debuts for Wu, Wittrock, Rothenberg and Camp. Rothenberg previously starred in Center Theatre Group’s Burn This at the Mark Taper Forum in 2011. Tickets go on sale Oct. 10.
