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's rare that we ever have the chance here in LV to see anything that is intellectually engaging, not to mention challenging, so I was quite excited to go. And it didn't disappoint. The acting was terrific and the use of technology added to the experience. I'm fine with the setting, except for the seats, which have their best days far behind them. It was difficult for my friend to stay in one for the time required, due to body frailties. She ended up in pain, but still wouldn't have left before the end. Looking forward to more recent, modern, intellectually stimulating plays. Also….can we all lobby for local movie theaters to subscribe to the FathomEvents plays, which they only did for the first year? If they come back, then we have to support.
