The Twilight Zone

Until January 27, 2018

Between light and shadow, science and superstition, fear and knowledge is a dimension of imagination. An area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Why See The Twilight Zone?

Coming to the stage for the first time!

You probably hid behind the sofa as a child whilst your parents watched the show; the tune is unmistakeably recognisable, and promises all sort of dread to come; you may have even been on the rides in the Disney parks. Whichever generation you're from, the Twilight Zone has cemented itself into popular culture. Now it heads to the stage for the first time ever.

This new stage adaptation was created by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, in collaboration with CBS, the original American TV channel that produced the show. A series of vignettes unfold live before your eyes, using illusion and stagecraft, challenging your perception, and even sometimes, your own beliefs. Are you brave enough to enter the Twilight Zone this December?
