ABOUT ZOMBIE ZOO

The Concept

image27

Kevin Short, being a true lover of multimedia, wanted to create something for the Edinburgh Festival which involved, film, drama, comedy,  music, song, and dance.    Zombie Zoo was conceived with  these all-encompassing elements  in mind.

The Plot

image28

  Zombie Zoo is a prison complex housing infected people.   A recovering zombie who wavers between lucidity and confusion is being interrogated.   Zookeeper interrogator appears to play it by the book yet is more than lenient due to secrets kept from his prisoner.

The Back Story

  Earth has been devastated by chemical and nuclear disasters.   Contamination has created an underworld of warring zombies . Zombie Zoo is a prison facility for ex-soldiers who carried poisonous weapons and were infected .  The prisoner is one such soldier.

The Venue

Hill Street Theatre is one of the most iconic Edinburgh venues, and is the longest continuous running theatre on the fringe.  It also houses the Edinburgh Little Theatre group, who will also be presenting a host of  shows during the festival. 

The Show

 A partially sane imprisoned Zombie tries outwitting his Zookeeper interrogator, swearing a zombie army is coming to free him. Using film, drama, humour, song, dance, this show’s finale must never be revealed, or zombies will devour your brains.  

The Cast

The cast includes the award-winning Dominic McHale and Kevin Short who reunite following their last appearances in the critically acclaimed Father and Son, and Best New Play  The Pigsty, which also played at the Edinburgh Festival.

The Festival

Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest Arts Festival in the world, and we feel privileged to be a part of it.  If you have never visited or participated, do go, it is the experience of a lifetime.  Plus, you can see Zombie Zoo while you're there.
