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

'Henry V' runs a full 2:50 with one 15 min intermission [snacks sold & some guests brought their own]. Considering the small space, the lighting/sound/costumes are very effective and lend atmospheric substance to a production with minimalist sets.
The acting was good and I was drawn into the familiar plot quite easily.
The theatre was very easy to find and is in a strip mall with ample free parking. The marquee above the entrance is well lit and easy to see from a distance. You will enter through, how shall i put it?...an adult themed retail shop [fun/campy] and can access will call with the cashier behind the counter. Once your hand is stamped you proceed down a short hallway into the actual 99 seat/8 row theatre and select your own comfortably padded seat w/cup holder.

"Straight up - it is time to remember honor and glory," explains John Beane. "We are presenting this, the most heroic of the histories, as a reminder of potential. We have spent the last season exploring the underbelly, rolling in the dirt, the sexual, the beautiful - it is time to remember where we come from. The quest for the divine. And the idea of victory in even the most impossible circumstances..."
