Fall out from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. A gripping terror-filled monochromatic play that brings all the fright of the cult classic to life. This blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending. “There are a lot of characterization possibilities in this piece. We got to work on the dynamics of fear, terror and the human responses they elicit. The zombies loved playing out evil.” (Krista Klander-man, Menasha High School, Menasha, WI.) –Dramatic Publishing
