The Twilight Zone is coming to the West End

The production transfers from the Almeida Theatre to the Ambassador's Theatre.

The stage adaptation of the hit CBS series The Twilight Zone is set to transfer from the Almeida Theatre to the Ambassador’s Theatre in the heart of the West End.

The Twilight Zone arrives off the back of a sell-out run, directed by Olivier Award winner Richard Jones and adapted for the stage by Anne Washburn.

Following the style of the TV show, the production follows eight extraordinary stories.

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…

Running for 156 episodes the original The Twilight Zone series premiered in 1959, airing until 1964. It has celebrated three revivals since; firstly in the 1980s, then in 2002, and now preparing to return to screens in 2019.

In 1983 the franchise was turned into a feature length film, with segments directed by Steven Spielberg and George Miller among others.

Casting for the show is yet to be announced.
