About the showAfter a sensational initial run at the Almeida Theatre, Anne Washburn’s thrilling stage adaptation of The Twilight Zone transfers to the West End. Playing a strictly limited season at the Ambassadors Theatre, the production is based on the original hit CBS television show.
In a world where everything is part of the imagination, The Twilight Zone takes place between past and present, light and shadow, science and superstition, and in a place where fear and knowledge are only intangible feelings. This is the area called the Twilight Zone.
Original casting for the production included Oliver Alvin-Wilson, Franc Ashman, Adrianna Bertola, Lizzy Connolly, Amy Griffiths, Neil Haigh, Cosmo Jarvis, John Marquez, Matthew Needham and Sam Swainsbury.
The Twilight Zone is adapted for the stage by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and is directed by Richard Jones, whose previous credits include Too Clever by Half and Into the Woods. The production features set design by Paul Steinberg, costume design by Nicky Gillibrand, movement direction by Aletta Collins, lighting design by Mimi Jordan Sherin and compositions and sound by Sarah Angliss.
An electrifying drama about socio-political commentary, mixed with sci-fi, The Twilight Zone is based on original stories by Rod Serling, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson. The show runs at the Ambassadors Theatre from 19 March 2019.
