I just wanted to quickly mention two Bay Area productions for those of you looking for some zombie theater this Halloween season.
The program features 3 One-Act plays, including the Grand Guignol classic KISS OF BLOOD, as well as LIPS OF THE DAMNED and THE EMPRESS OF COLMA, two original plays in the Grand Guignol tradition.
The bill culminates with Thrillpeddlers’ famed black-out spook show finale when ghostly apparitions materialize before the audience’s startled eyes. The Hypnodrome’s “Shock Box” seats provide pairs of patrons with privacy and an added jolt of “lights-out thrills.”
Last year, the town of Harwood, Texas was forever changed when it was overrun by hordes of flesh-eating zombies. This summer, it was again overrun by unwanted invaders when the Catharsis Theatre Collective came to town.
Like any good documentary play, Zombie Town: A Documentary Play tells the story of a community in crisis to help them heal through the power of theatre. It’s just that this particular crisis was a pretty awesome zombie attack.
If there are any additional Bay Area events that you would like to promote here on Zombie-Thon, just let me know… i’m easily bought off with free passes!
