The Almeida Theatre’s production of The Twilight Zone is to transfer to the West End.

Directed by Richard Jones and adapted for the stage by Anne Washburn, it will run at the Ambassadors Theatre from March 4, 2019.

The play is co-produced by the Almeida and Ron Fogelman. It is executive produced by Kenny Wax.

Fogelman said Jones and Washburh had “created a unique experience for the theatre that taps straight into the imagination”.

Almeida artistic director Rupert Goold added: “Half of the people who booked to see The Twilight Zone at the Almeida were visiting our theatre for the first time so it feels hugely exciting to be giving new audiences another chance to catch this extraordinary, wildly entertaining creation from Anne Washburn and Richard Jones.”

The play has design by Paul Steinberg, with costume by Nicky Gillibrand, lighting by Mimi Jordan Sherin and DM Wood, composition and sound by Sarah Angliss, sound by Christopher Shutt and movement by Aletta Collins.

Casting, to be announced, is by Julia Horan.
