Apocalyptic News: "The Zombie" Walks April 1

It's no joke. "The Zombie" by Tim Kelly opens April 1 and will run for 6 performances across two weekends at Gaslight Theater in Hallowell.

"The Zombie" is directed by Mike Clements and Eliza Robbins, and produced by Richard Bostwick and Anne Chamberlain.

About the Play

"The Zombie" is a comedy thriller in a weird and sinister setting the Okefenokee Swamp in Florida where voodoo practices are accepted. In a decayed mansion dripping with cobwebs and mystery, a former carnival hypnotist calling himself Baron Samedi and a crooked sheriff have developed an "unusual" business. They turn illegal immigrants, petty criminals and intruders into zombies and lease them out as farm laborers.

How does it turn out? You'll have to brave the swamp.
