The Twilight Zone Summary

The Twilight Zone by Anne Washburn

Between light and shadow, science and superstition, fear and knowledge is a dimension of imagination. An area 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 Twilight Zone Reviews

The energy, ambition and attainment of this terrific adaptation of stories from the eponymous classic 1960s American television series... will delight fans of the original and welcome in newcomers too, which is no mean feat. Anne Washburn sinuously interweaves stories from eight original episodes... A classy Christmas - and, I suspect, far beyond - treat. * Evening Standard *
This isn't a show just for fans, but it definitely acknowledges them. It's a loving pastiche, fully alert to the swirl of cultural inheritances that come with the show and its era... a playfully great piece of theatre about the power of imagination: about how people use storytelling, particularly science fiction, to navigate new frontiers and question society. There's a good reason that theme tune lingers. * The Stage *
A glorious exercise in sci-fi kitsch with a few smart lessons about the present... the real knockout scene is a reworking of 1961's 'The Bunker... basically the current battle or the soul of America distilled into a bleakly comic 15-minute playlet. * Time Out *
Unsettling, dazzling and sophisticated entertainment... accomplished with enormous flair. It is sometimes frightening, sometimes spooky and occasionally funny. The famous music may not make its appearance until right at the end, but the atmosphere and flavour of this cult TV show is precisely captured. Terrific. * WhatsOnStage *
