The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone

You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone… 

Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, this “piercingly smart” (Time Out) production of the acclaimed CBS Television series lands at the Ambassador’s Theatre, fresh from a rapturously received, sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre.

Songs for Nobodies

Songs for Nobodies

You are invited to a ‘truly virtuosic performance... a masterclass’ with songs from with Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas.

On stage for 90 minutes accompanied by live musicians and ‘performed with astounding versatility’, Bernadette Robinson’s miraculous voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the thrilling soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf. With consummate ease, she breathes new life into the five legendary performers and the five ordinary women whose lives were changed by their brush with fame.

1995, the Swiss Alps. Patricia Highsmith, the queen of the thriller, now ageing and ailing, hides away in her study, surrounded by her collection of books and antique weaponry, finding solace in her seclusion, her cats and cigarettes. A polished young man turns up, sent by her New York publisher to persuade the great writer to pen one final instalment of her best-selling series featuring the master manipulator, Tom Ripley. But as day breaks over the mountains, it becomes clear that the charming stranger is set on a far more sinister mission.

A small theatre with an equally small stage - the depth of the stage is only 6.25metres. The inimate auditorium has a proscenium arched stage which suits revue style productions. The Ambassadors and the St Martin's next door where conceived as companions by their architect WGR Sprague in 1913 - although the St Martin's was delayed by three years. The theatre changed its name to The New Ambassadors Theatre in 1999.

The Ambassadors is perhaps best known as the original home of the Agatha Christie thriller "The Mousetrap" which opened here on 25 November 1952 - and stayed until 25 March 1974 when it moved next door to the St Martin's. Notable productions after this include 84 Charing Cross Road and a transfer of The Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Christopher Hamptons play "Les Liasons Dangereuses". More recent productions have included revivals of "The Killing of Sister George" (with Miriam Margolyes) and "Dames at Sea" (with Kim Criswell, Sara Crowe and Peter Duncan).

The theatre was used by The Royal Court Theatre between 1996 and 1999 to stage their 'Theatre Upstairs' studio based work while their own theatre in Sloane Square underwent major reconstruction. Since June 1999 the theatre has been used to present short seasons of both new work and revivals.
