Stranger Things theatre play will unravel several mysteries leading to season five of the hit Netflix series. Ross Duffer, one of the show’s creators, mentioned that “it’s been fun to have the play influence the show, and the show influenced the play,” which means that fans can expect to find several clues to the finale in the play.

The Team Behind the Play

The original showrunners and writers of Stranger Things, including the Duffer Brothers, Kate Trefry, and Jack Thorne, have teamed up with the great director Stephen Daldry to bring the Stranger Things play to stage. Produced by Netflix and Sonia Friedman Productions, this multi-award-winning team has created a must-see theatrical experience.

A New Dimension to the Beloved Show

As Matt Duffer said, "[the story] really is designed for the theatre and the "stage". Stephen Daldry, a theatre veteran and winner of Tonys, Emmys and an Ollie, was a fan and wanted to bring it to the stage. His expertise and the immersive nature of theatre are bound to create a thrilling experience.

While the creators confirmed that the play will be canon, it works as a standalone story. Come be a part of the mysterious world of Stranger Things! Book your Stranger Things tickets today and grab the best seats using our handy Phoenix Theatre Seating Plan guide.
