You are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Your next stop, the Twilight Zone!

With stage renditions of three popular episodes, campy take-offs on vintage commercials, and a special tribute to a beloved 1960s comedy sketch show, this is the 13th time that Theater Company of Lafayette (TCL) has reprised this hugely popular format. Ian Gerber could be Rod Serling’s doppelganger, and will be reprising his role for the eleventh season.

Episode 1 is “A Piano in the House”, directed by Munam Goodwin.
Ms. Geraldine Fortune, hated theater critic and cynic at large, buys a player piano with the power to reveal the souls of all who hear it.

Episode 2 is “The Big Tall Wish”, directed by Don Thumim.
An aging boxer finds himself the winner of match he thought he had lost, the result of a child’s frantic wish. But can a world-weary, embittered man still believe in miracles?

Episode 3 is “The Midnight Sun” , directed by Paul Wells
When the earth falls out of its orbit, prolific artist, Norma, and her landlady, Mrs. Bronson, are the last residents in their New York apartment building. In this eerie and timely episode, Norma and Mrs. Bronson try to support each other as they watch life as they know it erode around them.
