Twilight Zone
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
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.

ALMEIDA THEATRE'S THE TWILIGHT ZONE TRANSFERS TO THE WEST END (6 NOVEMBER 2018)

After a sell-out Almeida run, The Twilight Zone will transfer to the West End and will run at the Ambassadors Theatre from 4 March 2019 (press night is 8 March). Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns), this production of the acclaimed classic CBS television series The Twilight Zone is directed by the multi-award-winning director (winner of seven Olivier Awards) Richard Jones.

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 three Emmy Awards during its 156-episode run. 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.

Producer Ron Fogelman said:
"The impact the production had on the audience at the Almeida Theatre was wonderful, showing just how timeless these stories continue to be. Anne Washburn and Richard Jones have created a unique experience for the theatre that taps straight into the imagination."

Artistic director of the Almeida, Rupert Goold, said:
"Half of the people who booked to see The Twilight Zone at the Almeida were visiting our theatre for the first time so it feels hugely exciting to be giving new audiences another chance to catch this extraordinary, wildly entertaining creation from Anne Washburn and Richard Jones."
