ROD SERLING'S STORIES FROM THE ZONE features two of Rod's classic stories:
MR. GARRITY AND THE GRAVES takes place 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.
In 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.
Rod Serling is celebrated for his work in feature films (Seven Days in May, Assault on a Queen, Planet of the Apes) and television (The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, The Loner, the Emmy-winning Requiem for a Heavyweight and Patterns, which was presented in a stage adaptation at Theatre 40 in 2015)

“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.”
