6 November marks the official ‘Stranger Things Day’ (i.e the day that Will Byers went missing and the world turned upside down) and to celebrate the day this year, we’ve been given a look behind the curtain of Stranger Things: The First Shadow, the upcoming Stranger Things stage play, which will be showing at the West End this December.
Check out the video here…
Stranger Things: The First Shadow is a gripping new adventure that will take you right back to the beginning of the Stranger Things story – and may hold the key to the end!
Here is the official synopsis…
Hawkins, 1959: a regular town with regular worries. Young Jim Hopper’s car won’t start, Bob Newby’s sister won’t take his radio show seriously and Joyce Maldonado just wants to graduate and get the hell out of town. When new student Henry Creel arrives, his family finds that a fresh start isn’t so easy… and the shadows of the past have a very long reach.
“We are beyond excited about Stranger Things: The First Shadow,” said creators Matt and Ross Duffer. “Collaborating with the brilliant Stephen Daldry has been nothing short of inspiring, and Kate Trefry has written a play that is at turns surprising, scary, and heartfelt.
“You will meet endearing new characters, as well as very familiar ones, on a journey into the past that sets the groundwork for the future of Stranger Things. We’re dying to tell you more about the story but won’t – it’s more fun to discover it for yourself. Can’t wait to see you nerds in London!”
The stage play will be directed by Stephen Daldry with co-director Justin Martin. Production opens on 14 December at the Phoenix Theatre in London’s West End, with previews beginning 17 November.
