Actor Morgan Bailey on Night of the Living Dead™️ – Remix
4th April 2020
An imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse Co-production
imitating the dog, one of the UK’s most original and innovative theatre companies joins forces with leading theatre producer Leeds Playhouse to recreate a unique shot-for-shot stage recreation of George A. Romero’s classic 1968 zombie movie – Night of The Living Dead™
This is a truly remarkable event, a must for theatre and film lovers alike.
Seven performers aim to recreate on stage, in real time, one of the first zombie movies ever made, shot-for-shot before our very eyes, undertaking the seemingly impossible. With 1,076 camera edits to re-enact in 95 minutes it’s a heroic struggle. Success requires wit, skill and ingenuity, what could possibly go wrong?
Heart-racing, funny and packed with fear. Never tried before – and perhaps for good reason – this is an extraordinary night at the theatre.
In 1968 Night of the Living Dead started out as a low-budget independent horror movie. Now, 50 years on, the film is recognised as a ground-breaking classic. A story of fear and alienation, it is widely regarded as a metaphor for the social problems that gripped 1960s America and the collapse of the picket-fence American dream. Seven strangers take refuge from flesh eating ‘ghouls’ in an isolated farmhouse. As the night approaches its inevitable grisly conclusion, the flesh-eaters seem to have the upper hand and hope turns to despair. Will our brave performers complete their task and will we all make it out alive?
