The Twilight Zone

Show & Venue Information

Peering round the corner and seeing what lurks in the distance, The Twilight Zone is the perfect show for those who are looking for West End mystery and spookiness. Originally a TV show aired in the 1950s, it’s gone on to provide countless popular culture references in episodes of Black Mirror, Frasier and The Simpsons. But, if you want to tap into what made the show tick, then you’ll want to head to this production, transferring into the West End from the Almeida Theatre. So, if you’re looking for a West End haunt, look no further and step into The Twilight Zone.

Managing to condense 7 years of a TV show is no mean feat. But, that’s exactly what The Twilight Zone has done, as Anne Washburn’s stage adaptation neatly condenses storylines together. For those who are familiar with the show, you’ll see some of your favourite scenes re-enacted on stage. If you’re new to the TV show, you’re bound to recognise some of the iconic scenes from episodes including “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up”. Looking into the unknown, you’ll leave the theatre feeling confused, entertained and excited.

After playing on American television for 5 years, The Twilight Zone was a ground-breaking show. Combining fantasy, thriller and science fiction, it looked into paranormal activity and suspicious goings on while talking about current affairs and politics. A show that seems to smash everything together, it’s an unmissable production you’ll have to see to believe.

Fans of the show celebrate 11th May as “National Twilight Zone Day” where fans celebrate the show together.

The TV series tackled topics including the Vietnam War and race relations in the United States, both highly controversial topics at the time.
