Night of the Living Dead is an instantly recognisable title; George Romero basically kick-started the zombie genre in his 1968 flick, though they were just ‘ghouls’ then, a moniker adhered to in this: Night of the Living Dead Live.
The play Night of the Living Dead is not quite like the eponymous B movie cult classic on which it is based. It’s very much a comedy sprinkled with horror and splashes of gore and I love it.
George A Romero’s 1968 movie Night Of The Living Dead not only unleashed zombies upon an unsuspecting world, but was also one of the first movies to fuse horrific gore with political allegory and just a spattering of satire.
Based on George A. Romero’s unparalleled 1968 film Night of the Living Dead, the first ever UK stage adaptation will open at Pleasance, London from 9 April to 19 May 2019. Directed by Benji Sperring, Night of the Living Dead Live will pay homage to the cult monochrome classic. Casting will be announced in due course.
