Hey Blog Readers:
For the past several seasons we’ve done our best to keep our season under wraps until we make our big season announcement. But we’re bored of that. So this year, we’re doing it differently.
We’re announcing our mainstage season one show at a time. Which means you’re just going to have to keep an eye on this blog over the next few months as we slowly unveil the shows we’ll be producing next year. We’ve already announced BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, and now we’re ready to announce show #2.
As flesh transformed Lycaon into raging beast,
these dead now awaken for one final feast.
Their bite brings affliction – wounds that don’t heal –
so sever their necks with thy good English steel.
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S LAND OF THE DEAD
A true and accurate account of the 1599 zombie invasion at the Globe Theatre
BY JOHN HEIMBUCH
This smash hit of the 2008 Minneapolis fringe fest explores the Elizabethan era of Shakespeare, Francis Bacon and Queen Elizabeth … all of whom are struggling to survive a zombie attack.
In the midst of an argument in which Will Kemp is thrown out of the theater for refusing to acknowledge Falstaff’s death in Henry V, a costume designer is mysteriously bitten by a zombie, thus causing all hell to break loose. As the Globe becomes a quarantine-zone in a zombie-riddled London, the characters must learn how to survive amongst both the undead and each other.
