THE TWILIGHT ZONE Is Being Adapted Into a Stage Play
It was recently announced that Rod Serling's classic sci-fi series The Twilight Zone is in the process of being adapted into a stage play. The Twilight Zone is one of my favorite shows of all time and even though I never expected it to ever become a stage play, it makes sense that it would be. All of the episodes could actually be its very own stage play. That's just how those shows were written back in the day.
Veronica Hart, svp, CBS Consumer Products, had this to say in a statement:
"The Twilight Zone was an ingenious mixture of morality tales, fables and fantasy that are as relevant today as when they first aired. The play allows these powerful stories to be experienced in an entirely new way in order to reach a whole new audience."
Producer Ron Fogelman added:
"Anne Washburn and Richard Jones have devised a show that honours the writing of Serling and his closest collaborators, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson," added producer Ron Fogelman. "They have created a new journey into the heartland of the imagination — the stage."
According to THR, the production will make its world premiere at the Almeida Theatre in London. Previews will begin on December 5th and a limited engagement is set to run through January 27th.
There are no details on what story or stories the play will tell, but I hope that whatever the do eventually makes its way to the states so that I can watch it!
