If you think Anton Chekov's Cherry Orchard of the Living Dead is a madcap mash-up of the Russian realist drama with George Romero-style zombie horror, you would be gloriously (gory-iously?) correct. From the genre-bending brain of Troy Heard, the celebrated theater director (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), comes this new play in which the worlds of czarist Russia and The Walking Dead collide. Madame Ranevskaya has returned to her ancestral manor following yet another whirlwind farewell tour, only to find things turned upside down. Instead of marrying off her nubile daughter Masha to the local scholar, she's boarding up windows and grabbing pistols to ward off an onslaught of resurrected serfs. The Onyx Theatre presents this world premiere supported by grants from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. Learn More

It can be hard to find authenticity in this city, but if that's what you are looking for, this is it! A friendly community theater with a first-rate production in an intimate theater setting (e.g., you are right next to the stage). Great casting on Stella, Stanley, and Blanche.
This production is produced by four women, all independent artists and teachers, each of whom has been personally and artistically compelled by this haunting, sinful and delicious play.
