William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead
March 14 @ 7:30 pm
The True and Accurate Account of the 1599 Zombie Plague
By John Heimbuch
Directed by Leon Potter
Starring VIU Theatre Department students as cast and crew.
The curtain has come down after the Lord Chamberlain’s Men’s inaugural performance of Henry V at the Globe Theatre; but instead of enjoying the applause, playwright William Shakespeare has to fend off an embittered actor and avoid a lawyer scheming for fame and fortune.
John Heimbuch’s combination of history and horror is a theatrical masterpiece, complete with scholarly nods, knowing winks, wayward clowns, quarreling advisers, and a relentless horde of shambling zombies.
