THE West End production of The Twilight Zone, currently running at the Ambassadors Theatre, continues to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original and iconic CBS television series by Rod Serling with a series of special post-show Q&As.

The first event will take place on Friday, May 17, 2019, immediately following the evening performance at the Ambassadors Theatre. This 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 the panel will be Producer, Ron Fogelman. The panel will include members of the cast, as well as two very special guests:

Christopher Beaumont representing the Estate of Charles Beaumont, one of the most important writers to contribute to the original series and whose classic story Perchance To Dream appears in the stage adaptation. The story follows the plight of Edward Hall, a man who cannot risk falling asleep or else he might confront the beautiful and sinister woman in his dreams.

Roger Luckhurst, Professor of Modern Literature at Birkbeck College, University of London. Luckhurst has written two histories of science fiction, the most recent published by the British Library in 2017. He has also written the British Film Institute classic on Ridley Scott’s Alien. His latest book is a history of the corridor from 1698 to the present day, which scandalously fails to mention Doctor Who even once.

Guests for the next Q&A event will be announced soon.

This highly successful West End transfer must end with the season finale on Saturday, June 1, 2019.

Adapted by Anne Washburn (Shipwreck, Mr. Burns) and directed by the multi award-winning director (winner of seven Olivier Awards), Richard Jones, this production of the acclaimed classic CBS television series The Twilight Zone is an ingenious mixture of morality tales, fables and fantasy that are as relevant today as when audiences first encountered them.

The ensemble cast includes Oliver Alvin-Wilson, Alisha Bailey, Natasha J Barnes, Adrianna Bertola, Dan Crossley, Dyfan Dwyfor, Neil Haigh, Nicholas Karimi, Lauren O’Neill and Matthew Steer.
