Experience George Romero’s 1968 cult classic like you’ve never experienced it before: live and in the flesh.
In this breathtaking collision of theatre, music, and cinema, Romero’s astonishing debut film is accompanied by two performers who have been tasked with performing just about everything you see and hear: voicing every character bar one, creating every sound effect, and playing a new original score by composer Leon Radojkovic (Live Live Cinema’s Little Shop of Horrors, Dementia 13, and Carnival of Souls).
Hailed by critics as a manifesto for modern horror, Night of the Living Dead sees a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse, fending off a horde of flesh-eating zombies. An allegory for America in the 60s with enduring relevance today – a society eating itself from within – this unlikely revival takes you deep into the belly of the beast for an exhilaratingly anarchic theatre experience.
Starring Hayley Sproull and Jack Buchanan, and directed by Sophie Roberts.
Restricted to ages 16+.
Contains violence and police brutality.
Co-produced by Auckland Arts Festival and Silo Theatre, in association with Jumpboard Productions
