Showing Rating details. Sort order. Dec 28, Michael Cook rated it really liked it. I imagine this play would be a lot more fun to watch than it was to read. So much of what happens seems to rely on the creative use of sound and staging in order to pull off the events. That being said, this adaptation is definitely an interesting way of tying together a bunch of disparate episodes of "The Twilight Zone" into some kind of coherent two hour play.
It's very disjointed and it takes some time to get used to how Washburn is telling the story, but in that very disjointed nature lies on I imagine this play would be a lot more fun to watch than it was to read. It's very disjointed and it takes some time to get used to how Washburn is telling the story, but in that very disjointed nature lies one of the best examinations of this fictional Twilight Zone.

It's always been sort of implied that many of the stories presented in the original series could have taken place in the same weird, otherworldly universe, but this play goes a long way toward making that explicit. The way the narrator appears and disappears, how different characters randomly zone out and start reciting some of the famous Twilight Zone monologue, how various characters from different episodes all interact with each other, and even the very last scene of the play all work together to give audiences a better glimpse at the actual Twilight Zone.
It's this weird realm where anything is possible and time doesn't matter and all these different things happen at once and also don't happen. It's a clever way to bring these stories to the stage without just doing a series of one act plays. It's a bit of a confusing read, but once you get the hang of the style, it's pretty enjoyable. I can only imagine how fun it would be to watch. The story is a combination of several classic and some forgotten episodes.
Some of the episodes are given new endings, but the message remains the same for most. While the script is an engaging enough read, there is such a visual and auditory element as seen in the script that makes viewing the production essential.
I would probably rate this higher if I could see it performed. Sep 23, Daniel rated it really liked it Shelves: plays-theater , read-in A powerful tool for both good and destruction. Scottish National Gallery On Display.
