Fans of the Netflix series will be excited to get a completely fresh take on the beloved show, rather than just watching the same storylines played out in the theatre.

While the TV series focuses on Eleven's super powers and her friends' help in protecting her from the sinister research lab while battling monsters, the theatre show shifts its gaze to the show's adults.

Delve into Hopper, Joyce and co's back stories as the throwback plot sheds more light on how the Hawkins grown-ups first met and how their own teenage years affect events in the future.

The show's description reads: "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."

Sadly, as the show is a prequel it means we can't expect to see Millie Bobby Brown, Winona Ryder or David Harbour take to the stage.

However, series creators The Duffer Brothers are closely involved in the show and have promised you won't be disappointed.

A joint statement from Matt and Ross Duffer said: "The cast of Stranger Things: The First Shadow is nothing short of phenomenal.

"These actors brilliantly explore the early days of many fan favorites – including Hopper, Joyce, Bob, Henry and Dr. Brenner – while also bringing new characters to vivid life. We couldn’t be more thrilled and can’t wait for you to meet them all live on stage. See you in London, nerds!"
