From Duncan Sheik, the Tony Award-winning composer of Spring Awakening and the recent American Psycho, comes new musical Whisper House. Making its debut in 2010 at California’s Old Globe Theatre, Whisper House features a rock score of songs with lyrics by Kyle Jarrow. A lesson in learning how to embrace the unknown, this ghostly tale is an unforgettable story influenced by parts of Sheik’s childhood when he spent time in Hilton Head, South Carolina, sharing ghost stories with his friends near the iconic lighthouse of Harbour Town.
A cast of West End regulars lead this production, including Dianne Pilkington, Niamh Perry, Simon Bailey and Simon Lipkin and are joined by Nicholas Goh, Fisher Costello-Rose and Stanley Jarvis.

Perhaps he is not himself, but he could swear the voices are warning him of real danger. And as time passes, the ghostly whispers become something much louder…
