The Twilight Zone

Ambassadors Theatre, London
Booking to 1 June 2019
Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, this “piercingly smart” (Time Out) production of the acclaimed CBS Television series lands at the Ambassador’s Theatre, fresh from a rapturously received, sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre.

Hailed as “a treat from far beyond” (Evening Standard), this “whirling paranormal kaleidoscope” (The Guardian) leads you on a chilling journey into the unknown, through eight stories set where the extraordinary is ordinary, the impossible probable, and where you’re never entirely sure what’s real and what’s your imagination.

But don’t worry. Your imagination can’t hurt you…can it?

Unlock the door to “unsettling, dazzling and sophisticated entertainment” (WhatsOnStage) with this electrifying, unpredictable evening of mystery, fantasy and the wonderfully weird.

The Twilight Zone is booking from 4 March 2019 until 1 June 2019 at The Ambassadors Theatre, London.

West End transfer for Almeida’s The Twilight Zone
Almeida Theatre's acclaimed production of The Twilight Zone will open at The Ambassadors Theatre in March next year. Anne Washburn's adaptation of the classic 1960s CBS series weaves several episodes from Rod Serling’s wildly popular science-fiction anthology series into one creepy, sweeping narrative. The Twilight Zone is fondly remembered for introducing many Americans to the sci-fi genre with a number of episodes making their mark in television history as pop culture icons. The series draws comparisons to the modern Channel 4/Netflix series Black Mirror: each episode posed moral questions through a series of eerie, often shocking narratives which almost always contained a stunning twist. Veronica Hart, Executive Vice President, CBS Consumer Products said “The play captures the thought-provoking, comedic and unnerving essence of the original Twilight Zone, allowing these powerful stories to be enjoyed in an entirely new way by a whole new audience.” Directed by Richard Jones, The Twilight Zone has design by Paul Steinberg, with costume design by Nicky Gillibrand, lighting design by Mimi Jordan Sherin, and D.M Wood, composition and sound by Sarah Angliss, sound by Christopher Shutt, movement direction by Aletta Collins, casting by Julia Horan, and illusions by Richard Wiseman and Will Houstoun. Casting to be announced. Find tickets to The Twilight Zone The Twilight Zone is booking from 4 Mary 2019 until 1 June 2019 at The Ambassadors Theatre, London.

Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon to star in Foxfinder
Olivier Award-winning actor Iwan Rheon will star in the West End premiere of Dawn King's award-winning thriller this Autumn. Best known for playing Ramsay Bolton in the international hit series Game of Thrones, his other work includes E4’s BAFTA award-winning superhero drama Misfits, ITV’s Vicious, BBC One’s Our Girl, Netflix sci-fi thriller Residue , Sky One's Riviera/cite> and Marvel’s ABC drama series Inhumans . Iwan made his stage debut in Eight Miles High at Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre, before his breakthrough role as the haunted, suicidal Moritz in the musical Spring Awakening, for which he won the 2010 Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical. Other theatre work includes John Osborne's The Devil Inside Him (National Theatre Wales) and Aleksey Scherbak’s Remembrance Day at the Royal Court Theatre. King's unsettling and darkly comic drama is a parable about the irrational search for scapegoats to explain the ills that haunt mankind. Set in an English countryside on the brink of crisis, Iwan play's William Bloor, a foxfinder sent to a failing farm to investigate a suspected fox infestation. Fixated on the fox that is to blame for the farm's woes, he finds more questions than answers. Foxfinder is directed by Rachel O’Riordan (Olivier Award for Killology - Royal Court), with costume and set design by Gary McCann and lighting design by Paul Anderson. Simon Slater is composer and sound designer for the production. Full casting to be announced.
