Step into The Twilight Zone at these Q&As

Carly-Ann Clements

By Carly-Ann Clements First Published 10 May 2019, Last Updated 10 May 2019

We’ve all imagined ourselves in a different time and place while standing with our faces in someone’s armpit on the tube. But now, it’s time to explore a whole new dimension thanks to a series of post-show Q&As at The Twilight Zone.

The stage adaptation of the TV series by Rod Serling will be answering all your burning questions immediately after the show on 17 May. This particular Q&A will explore the imagination and why we have it, the close links between science and science fiction, as well as why The Twilight Zone franchise continues to be such a major influence.

Introducing the event and leading the panel will be the show’s producer Ron Fogelman. He will be joined by members of the cast, plus Christopher Beaumont and Roger Luckhurst.

Christopher is from the Estate Of Charles Beaumont. Charles was one of the most important writers to contribute to the original series and whose classic story Perchance To Dream appears in the stage adaptation.

Roger is Professor Of Modern Literature at University Of London and has written two histories of science fiction, the most recent published by the British Library in 2017.

Further Q&As will be announced at a later date.

The Twilight Zone is a whirling paranormal kaleidoscope which 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.

It’s been adapted by Anne Washburn and directed by the multi-award-winning director Richard Jones. It enjoyed a sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre before being transferred to the Ambassadors Theatre earlier this year. This current run will end on 1 June so you only have a few weeks to catch it before it disappears…

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
