Before the world turned upside down...

Why See Stranger Things - The First Shadow?



The West End is set to be turned upside down as this exciting new addition to the Duffer Brother's Stranger Things universe touches down in London later this year. 

Taking us back to the town of Hawkins in 1959, this new story by Kate Trefry, the Duffer Brothers, and playwright of the moment, Jack Thorne, will feature some of the Netflix show's favourite characters, including a young Jim Hopper, Joyce Maldonado and Bob Newbie as they grapple with the first shadows of danger in the sleepy small town.

With an award-winning creative team, expect breathtaking special effects and stagecraft that pushes the limits of possibility when this brand new Stranger Things dimension opens!
