It's time for a good old fashioned Shakespearean zombie play! This event is at Common Ground Theatre in Durham. Showtime is at 2pm. We'll meet by 1:30 in the lobby to mix and mingle and get in line for seats (no assigned seating at this theatre). I suggest buying your ticket in advance (just in case!) at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/283158
The play should end about 4pm (according to the website) and those interested can head to an early dinner to chat and talk about the play.
As always I have no idea if this production will be to your liking or not, but it sounds intriguing!
A true and accurate account of the 1599 zombie plague in London, William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead finds Shakespeare’s Henry V opening at the Globe Playhouse, but while the actors strut and fret, an excess of bile plagues the populace outside. After the opening of his newest play, William Shakespeare must once again defend his work – fending off the embittered clown Will Kemp while trying to appease Francis Bacon, a wealthy lawyer who has come with an idea to pitch. But when the company’s costumer is bitten by a plague-ridden madman, and the Queen and her men arrive seeking safety, life in the playhouse takes a turn for the worse. As the affliction spreads through London, the Globe is placed in quarantine and the survivors within must fight for their lives. Can they escape? Is there a cure? Is artistic integrity ever worth dying for?
