The Twilight Zone

based on stories by Rod Serling, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson | adapted by Anne Washburn

Directed By Richard Jones

Tickets £10 - £48


production information

Between light and shadow, science and superstition, fear and knowledge is a dimension of imagination. An area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, this world premiere production of the acclaimed CBS Television Series The Twilight Zone lands on stage for the first time in its history. Or its present. Or its future.

Stage magic and fantasy unite as the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
