In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

The first act - Terror at BPT - started out with an interesting slant - the more animated zombies - but I think wandered too far afield with the non-affected people interactions. I think more could have been done with the "Vicor"'s role and the basis for the new order of things.
The second act - Last Night Cabaret - was more enjoyable and lots of humor. The inclusion of "Omar" in the audience was, at first, annoying; until I realized it was part of the act. Again, the more animated zombies was a twist on the accepted concept, but was amusing.

Zombie Double Feature is a double bill that tells the giddily gruesome stories of Boston Playwrights’ Theatre’s new inhabitants.
In Midnight at the Last Night Cabaret we find ourselves at a crossroads wondering if the imminent doom palpable in the city is reality or a joke. A group of performers gather at BPT to put on a vaudeville show as the world begins to collapse. Our awareness of time, cataclysmic scope, and absurdity are challenged as zombies and the living boggle their way through the performance laying waste to everything in their path. Only the audience can save us in this choose-your-own-adventure escapade through Boston’s last night as we know it.
Terror at BPT takes place months after the undead infestation has unleashed a pox upon humanity. Survivors continue to gather at Boston Playwrights’ Theatre to wait out the ruin. Under the watchful eye of The Vicar the inhabitants of BPT make fun where they can in close quarters where societal rules no longer apply. After a day of bumping, grinding, and praising the lord, one couple shares a moment of intimacy with supernatural repercussions.
