The play is by Danny Robins and will run at the Noel Coward Theatre until October.

She plays Jenny in 2:22, a supernatural thriller about four friends caught up in a night of high tension. The play follows Lily’s character, who believes her new home is haunted – but her husband Sam (Fraser) remains skeptical.

They argue with their first dinner guests, old friend Lauren (Chan) and new partner Ben (Wood) and decide to stay awake until 2.22am to discover the truth.

Robins is best known for his docudrama horror podcast The Battersea Poltergeist, starring Dafne Keen and Toby Jones, which is being made into a TV series. The new play is also his debut in the West End.
