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 holed up in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse and battle constant attacks from dead locals who have been brought back to life by a mysterious radiation.
