about this item

Between light and shadow, science and superstition, fear and knowledge is a dimension of imagination. An area we call the Twilight Zone.Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, this world premiere production of the acclaimed CBS Television Series The Twilight Zone lands on stage for the first time in its history. Or its present. Or its future.Stage magic and fantasy unite as the ordinary becomes extraordinary.

Anne Washburn's plays include 10 out of 12, Antlia Pneumatica, Apparition, The Ladies, I Have Loved Strangers, The Communist Dracula Pageant, and transadaptations of Euripides' Orestes and Iphigenia in Aulis. Her plays have been produced in the US, and internationally. She is an associated artist with Obie award winning groups 13P, The Civilians and New Georges, and is an alumna of New Dramatists. Mr Burns and The Internationalist are also published by Oberon Books.

Rod Serling (1924-1975) was born in Syracuse, NY and grew up in Binghamton. He created The Twilight Zone and the show debuted in 1959. CBS would air 156 episodes, an astonishing 92 of which were written by Serling over its five year run. He won six Emmys over the course of his career.

Charles Beaumont (1929-1967) was a prolific American author of speculative fiction, including short stories in the horror and science fiction subgenres. He is perhaps best remembered as the writer of many classic Twilight Zone episodes (many of them based upon his own short stories). Best-selling novelist Dean R. Koontz has said, "[Charles Beaumont was] one of the seminal influences on writers of the fantastic and macabre."

Richard Matheson (1926-2013) is the author of many classic novels and short stories. In addition to books, he wrote prolifically for television (including The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, Star Trek) and numerous feature films. Many of Matheson s novels and stories have been made into movies, including I Am Legend. His many awards include the World Fantasy and Bram Stoker Awards for Lifetime Achievement, the Hugo Award, and in 2010 he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.
