The North Hollywood Theatre along with The Group Rep is proud to present George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, adapted for the stage by filmmaker Gus Krieger (The Binding, Fender Bender, The Killing Room), directed by Drina Durazo, produced by Larry Eisenberg, October 4 through November 10, on the Main Stage of the Lonny Chapman Theatre in North Hollywood, California. And this is one play that just won’t stay dead!
In Night of the Living Dead, as a mysterious pandemic emerges and quickly spreads, seven strangers barricade themselves within a Pennsylvania farmhouse, attempting to escape the swarms of bloodthirsty, flesh-eating ghouls now ravaging the countryside. Beset by the walking dead outside, and ever-rising interpersonal tensions within, the group begins their desperate attempt to survive the longest night of their lives. A harrowing new adaptation of the classic film, Night of the Living Dead remains an incisive and terrifying exploration of human nature, and the demons that plague us both inside and out.
The cast features the talents of Ashkhan Aref, Matthew Jayson Cwern, Kate Faye, Sean Faye, Cameron Kauffman, Kaia Mann, Lisa McGee Mann, Marc Antonio Pritchett, and Ian Runge; with Greg Abbott, Van Boudreaux, Patrick Burke, Paul Cady, Fox Carney, Kyle DeCamp, Larry Eisenberg, Doug Engalla, Laureen Faye, JC Gafford, Doug Haverty, Taylor Martin, Adam Neubauer, and Jake Scozzaro; and Cardonna Atkins, Donnathan Atkins, Stephanie Colet, Julie Davis, Hisato Masuyama, and Troy Whitaker.
