William Shakespeare's The Land of the Dead

Friday, November 17, 2023 8:00 PM - Saturday, December 9, 2023 2:00 PM (PST)


Two biting comedies. One with a bloodier bite. Shakespeare, uneasy laughs and epic zombie fights! After the opening of his newest play at the Globe playhouse, William Shakespeare and actors strut and fret while an excess of bile plagues the populace outside. When the company’s costumer is bitten by a plague-ridden madman, and the Queen and her men arrive seeking safety, life in the playhouse takes a turn for the worse. As the affliction spreads through London, the survivors within must fight for their lives. Can they escape? Is there a cure? Is artistic integrity ever worth dying for? WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S THE LAND OF THE DEAD is a true and accurate account of the Elizabethan zombie plague. Performs in repertory with District Merchants by award-winning playwright Aaron Posner!
