Sunday 6pm performance allows for an early dinner/happy hour at some of the restaurants north of the train tracks...we ate at Kentro Greek Kitchen and it was a peaceful and yummy experience.

Short, but good play. It had a couple of twists and the ending was great.

Excellent adaptation of the cult classic movie. Very creative and gripping. Can't wait to go back to this theatre to see what they do next.

Description

Back by popular demand, The Maverick Theater’s original adaptation of Night of the Living Dead returns to the stage. The dead are walking, and hunger for human flesh.  Six strangers hold up in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse and battle constant attacks from dead locals who have been brought back to life by a mysterious radiation.  What play could be better suited for the stage during the Halloween season than Night of the Living Dead, the cult classic B-movie that launched the “zombie film” genre.

Adapted to the stage by the director Brian Newell from the screenplay by George Romero and John Russo.
