About this event

A partially sane imprisoned Zombie tries outwitting his Zookeeper interrogator, swearing a zombie army is coming to free him. Using film, drama, humour, song and dance, this show’s finale must not be revealed or zombies will devour your brains. 'Zombie Zoo' is a prison complex housing infected soldiers. A recovering Zombie who wavers between lucidity and confusion is at war with his Zookeeper master. Their relationship hovers between compassion and stubborn vitriol until the shocking, exhilarating, surprise denouement. Direct from the Edinburgh Festival, London and New York, written by award-winning former Royal National Theatre actor, Kevin Short and featuring filmed sequences edited by Emmy nominated Kathryn S Kraus, you better believe it, they eat brains. And then, they 'Do the Zombie'.
