This is ROD SERLING’S STORIES FROM THE ZONE:
Stage adaptations of two classic episodes of his best-loved TV series. You’ll be 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…
Mr. Garrity and the Graves: In the Old West circa 1890, a man and his wagon find their way into the town of Happiness, Arizona. The man, Garrity, claims to have the ability to resurrect the dead. Some of the townspeople figure that resurrecting the folks planted on Boot Hill might not be the best idea.
Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?: Passengers of a snow-bound bus originally bound for Boston are stranded at a roadside diner. There’s a growing realization that one of their number might actually be an invader from Mars.

What critics were saying:
“Neither [story] allows for a dull moment, and both will keep the audience glued to the edge of their seats. They are eerie – and also lots of fun.”
