Night of the Living Dead

October 11, 2018 - October 28, 2018

Cumberland Theatre & Creative Arts Center

Six strangers, a lonely farmhouse, surrounded by brain-eating zombies - what could go wrong? Night of the Living Dead is a fun and hilarious re-imagining of George A. Romero's legendary classic. Set in 1968, it literally feels like the film has been brought to life and placed onstage. The play lovingly examines the movie itself, the period in which it was made, and the film's undying influence on the horror genre. Night of the Living Dead, the film, was produced at a time of incredible social and political upheaval. The film was met with controversy for featuring an African American protagonist and realistic horror images; and yet, possibly the most controversial element to Night of The Living Dead was the ending Which leaves us all wondering: Could anyone survive a night of the living dead? Fun Fact! Parts of the original 1968 film were shot in and around Cumberland!
