The Twilight Zone
You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone...

Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, this "piercingly smart" (Time Out) production of the acclaimed CBS Television series lands at the Ambassador's Theatre, fresh from a rapturously received, sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre.

Hailed as "a treat from far beyond" (Evening Standard), this "whirling paranormal kaleidoscope" (The Guardian) leads you on a chilling journey into the unknown, through eight stories set where the extraordinary is ordinary, the impossible probable, and where you're never entirely sure what's real and what's your imagination.

But don't worry. Your imagination can't hurt you ... can it?

Unlock the door to "unsettling, dazzling and sophisticated entertainment" (WhatsOnStage) with this electrifying, unpredictable evening of mystery, fantasy and the wonderfully weird.

Adapted by Anne Washburn (Shipwreck, Mr. Burns) and directed by the multi award-winning director (winner of 7 Olivier Awards), Richard Jones, this production of the acclaimed classic CBS television series The Twilight Zone is an ingenious mixture of morality tales, fables and fantasy that are as relevant today as when audiences first encountered them.

The Twilight Zone is based on original stories by Rod Serling, and two of the most frequent and celebrated contributors, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson from the CBS television series.
It is one of television's most revered and influential science-fiction fantasy shows and ran on American network CBS from 1959 to 1964, winning 3 Emmy Awards during its 156-episode run. Its incisive parables explore humanity's hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices. The programme has had a seminal influence on popular culture; from Stephen King to Lin-Manuel Miranda, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan to Steven Spielberg, The Simpsons to Black Mirror.

With the original series celebrating its 60th Anniversary Year, a new version of The Twilight Zone recently began production and is coming to CBS All Access in 2019 with Jordan Peele serving as host and narrator. The upcoming new series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg's Genre Films.
