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
Reviews & Ratings
Written entirely in poetry, spoken word, verse and music, this is a play about a young woman who comes home after many years to visit her parents. She finds herself alone, and decides to take a trip Down the Rabbit Hole into her old bedroom. Here she discovers her childhood dress-up clothes, her old books, and her youthful obsession with Fairy Tales. Now, a somewhat jaded, successful writer living in NYC, she discovers that her naive illusions of "prince charming" and "happily ever after" have changed. The reality of life is much more difficult than the stories of her youth once led her to believe. She dives into her old fairy tales and this time takes a modern day look into what these characters really are all about.
-You will meet the newly redefined Cinderella- who comes clean on what life is really like living with "The Prince".
-Goldilocks, who finds herself in quite an unusual predicament, reveals her deep dark secret.
-Snow White's Evil Stepmother, who for the first time, tells her side of the story and is faced with news that will change her life.
-Belle (from Beauty in the Beast) who is now a school teacher by day, and a pole dancer by night.
- And of course, you will meet ALICE- Wonderland is not so innocent after all, as she shares the night that led her into womanhood!
