Giovanna Fletcher Takes Over 2:22 – A Ghost Story Lead From Lily Allen

The wife of McFly frontman Tom Fletcher has been added to the cast ensemble that includes ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ star Stephanie Beatriz and ‘The Inbetweeners’ actor James Buckley.

AceShowbiz -TV star and author Giovanna Fletcher will replace Lily Allen in West End hit “2:22 – A Ghost Story”.

The wife of McFly pop star Tom Fletcher will join “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Stephanie Beatriz and “The Inbetweeners” actor James Buckley when the thriller moves theaters for a new season at the end of the year (2021).

Lily, who won rave reviews for her role as Jenny in the original production, made her West End debut in the show at the Noel Coward Theatre. Giovanna will lead the show when it transfers to the Gielgud Theatre for a 10-week run that ends in February 2022.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of 2:22 – A Ghost Story as Jenny,” Giovanna said in a statement. “Reading the script the first time gave me chills and that feeling has increased in subsequent readings.”

“It’s such an honor to be putting this play on its feet for a West End audience. Someone pinch me. On reflection, please don’t! What a dream!”

Directed by Matthew Dunster, the play revolves around a young wife, convinced her new home is haunted. She persuades her sceptical husband and an old friend and her boyfriend to stay up until 2.22 A.M. to seek out the truth about the spooks.

Of the new run, Matthew said, ” ‘2:22’ had an extraordinary effect on audiences. I’ve never experienced anything like it. They loved the play and the surprises in the casting. We now have a completely new cast — again full of rich surprises.”

“I can’t wait for audiences to find out who the new cast are and for us all to relish their new interpretation of the scary and funny phenomenon that is ‘2:22’.”
