Michaelmas Week 3
On a pilgrimage to their father's grave, siblings Jonny and Barbara are attacked by a pale faced man. Barbara flees. Jonny doesn't get the chance. Joined by stranger Ben, they seek shelter in a nearby farmhouse. She and Ben fight for their lives, unaware of those hiding in that same home. Terrified, the group of survivors listen as a broadcaster spells out their fate:
The dead don't die.
Stuck in a room, surrounded by death, tensions rise as society crumbles and the argument turns from survival to power.
Adapted from Romero's immortal Night of the Living Dead (1968), this immersive play re-examines what makes us afraid, how society falls apart and the power of solidarity in the face of the inevitable.
