Like most old theatres, the Edinburgh Playhouse has its own resident ghost. The reports of paranormal activity date back to at least the 1950s when the police were called to investigated a reported break in. One of the officers claimed to have spoken to a man dressed in grey who identified himself as Albert, but there were no staff by that name.

The ghost of Albert has been spotted in the building ever since, especially on the sixth floor. He is though to be a stage hand who died in an accident at the theatre. Theatre-goers have also reported strange goings on, including the sensation of being touched by unseen hands and hearing unexplained noises around the building.
