You are about to experience a journey into another world. A portal into another realm, a dive into another dimension. You are about to enter… The Twilight Zone rehearsal room.

Yes, ahead of the critically acclaimed show’s West End transfer, which arrives in the original TV series’ 60th anniversary year, The Twilight Zone is looking more mind-bending than ever before. The hit stage show originally played at the Almeida Theatre towards the end of 2017, and begins performances at the Ambassadors Theatre on the 4 March.

Packed full of The Twilight Zone’s signature morality tales, fables and fantasy stories – an inspiration for the likes of Black Mirror and Stephen King – this stage show is directed by the multi Olivier Award-winning Richard Jones.

Don’t miss your chance to delve into the unknown – enjoy these first rehearsal photos from The Twilight Zone preparations (all taken by Johan Persson), and then book your tickets to see the show in the West End. A wondrous land of imagination awaits.

The Twilight Zone is based on original stories by Rod Serling, and two of the most frequent and celebrated contributors, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson, from the CBS television series.

The seminal television show remains influential in the science-fiction genre, and and ran on American network CBS from 1959 to 1964, winning 3 Emmy Awards during its 156-episode run. Its incisive parables explore humanity’s hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices.
