Twelfth Night of the Living Dead (or What You Kill)

June 21 @ 8:00 pm - July 7 @ 10:30 pm


This is what happens to Shakespeare’s original text of Twelfth Night when its heroine, its ‘beating heart,’ is marauding through it as a ZOMBIE.

Viola didn’t survive the shipwreck. But she still washes up in Illyria, with a single-minded purpose – brains. A loving massacre of Shakespeare’s masterful comedy, born from the realization that the original text can and does survive as its characters, one by one, turn into zombies. The sheer self-involvement of some characters transcends all need for earthly dialogue, and that one of the characters has, in fact, been swearing revenge for 400 years. Shakespeare meets creature-feature in this mash-up that promises to be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!
