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.
