The 1968 classic zombie movie Night of The Living Dead™ will be recreated shot-for-shot live on stage at the Liverpool Playhouse next year.
Theatre company imitating the dog and the Leeds Playhouse are set to bring their production Night of the Living Dead™- Remix to the city as part of a new UK tour.
Night of the Living Dead started out as a low-budget independent horror movie telling the story of seven strangers taking refuge from flesh eating ghouls in an isolated farmhouse.
More than half a century later, seven performers enter the stage armed with cameras, a box of props and a rail of costumes. Can they recreate the ground-breaking film, shot-for-shot before our eyes, using whatever they can lay their hands on?
With 1,076 edits in 95 minutes, it's a heroic struggle. Success will require wit, skill and ingenuity and is by no means guaranteed.
The production is directed by imitating the dog’s co-artistic directors Andrew Quick and Pete Brooks. Casting is yet to be announced.
Night of the Living Dead™- Remix comes to Liverpool Playhouse from February 18-22, 2020.
