The Twilight Zone tickets

Following an acclaimed initial run at The Almeida, Anne Washburn’s thrilling stage adaptation of hit CBS television show The Twilight Zone transfers to the West End. Playing a limited season at London’s Ambassadors Theatre, the production arrives after receiving rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.

The Twilight Zone is the electrifying sci-fi drama packed with apt socio-political commentary. In a world where everything is part of the imagination, the Twilight Zone is the sticky area between past and present, light and shadow, science and superstition and fear and knowledge.

Some of the original cast reprise their roles return for the Ambassadors Theatre run, including Oliver Alvin-Wilson, Neil Haigh and Adrianna Bertola. Alongside them are Dan Crossley, Matthew Steer, Lauren O'Neill, Dyfan Dwyfor, Nicholas Karimi, Natasha J Barnes and Alisha Bailey.

Anne Washburn adapts The Twilight Zone for the stage, with previous credits including the heralded Mr Burns. Richard Jones directs, after helming multiple productions at the Young Vic and National Theatre, as well as receiving Olivier Awards for Too Clever by Half and Sondheim musical Into the Woods.

Further creative team includes set designer Paul Steinberg, costume designer Nicky Gillibrand, movement director Aletta Collins and lighting designer Mimi Jordan Sherin, with composer and sound designer Sarah Angliss.

Based on the original stories by Rod Serling, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson, The Twilight Zone entertained audiences for years. After a premiere at the Almeida Theatre in 2017, the show returns to London, playing a strictly limited season at the Ambassadors Theatre from 19 March 2019.

Performance dates: 01 Jun 2019 - 01 Jun 2019

Running time: 2 hours 10 mins (including interval)

Age recommendation: Recommended 12+

Special notice: Those who enjoyed the original CBS television show will thoroughly enjoy this stage adaptation, whilst those who missed it during its run at the Almeida now have the chance to see the production in the West End.

Really fun, well acted play with a great set. I understand why some reviews say it is a little disjointed and hard to follow at times - had to explain some bit to the two teenage boys with me - but it all slots together. Perhaps if you were a fan of the TV series you get more out of it, but the boys found it as entertaining as I did.

I really liked the show. I remember watching the TV shows back in the 70s and they could be a bit hit and miss. But this theatre production was quirky, intertwining a number of storylines, sometimes serious and a bit unsettling and sometimes light-hearted and comedic. The set design and the scene changes were clever, I thought. The smallness of the theatre adds to the atmosphere.

As a big fan of The Twilight Zone, I really enjoyed it! I loved all the little Rod Serling references throughout with the cigarettes and intros/closing monologues. However, if you do not know the show’s episodes well, I would recommend not seeing this as I feel like you would get little enjoyment from it.

An amazing show! I was extremely impressed by the acting as well as the creative and amusing way in which the props were moved around, as the story lines shifted. What was particularly impressive was that the same actors appeared in different story lines, showing their skills at playing different characters and being able to remember different lines of dialogue. Well impressed.

The show was surprisingly great and I am not even a fan, unlike my other half (who used the unheard of for him response of what an excellent show!), of the original TV programme. It was very well done, visually, special effects and well presented by cast and prop aids. The actors portrayed many different characters and were so versatile you were never confussed or lost in time or space unlike some of the poor souls trapped in The Twighlight zone forever more!
