The Almeida theatre enters The Twilight Zone this December

The Twilight Zone

Well colour me surprised – the Almeida Theatre in north London is putting on some adaptations of classic episodes of The Twilight Zone from this December. I wonder who’ll play Rod Serling?

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.

The stories chosen are by Rod Serling, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson, so that should narrow things down – but only a little bit.

The production runs from 5th December 2017 to 27th January 2018, with a post-show discussion with members of the company on 11th January. Tickets cost £10-£48 and available here to the public from July 27.
