An imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse Co-production
“Seven strangers take refuge from flesh eating ‘ghouls’ in an isolated farmhouse. As the night draws in, their situation becomes desperate, hope turns to despair, and the picket-fence American dream is smashed apart.
Seven performers enter the stage armed with cameras. Can they recreate the film, shot-for-shot before our eyes, using whatever they can lay their hands on?
50 years after the release of George A.Romero’s politically charged zombie movie, imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse create a love-song to the original 1960s film, retelling it as a searing story for now.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD ™ – REMIX, the live stage show, was presented by courtesy of Image Ten, Inc. The production opened at Leeds Playhouse on 28th January 2020 and toured UK venues until 14th March 2020, when the tour came to an early end when restrictions were put in place due to Coronavirus. This recording was filmed during dress rehearsal at Leeds Playhouse in January 2020. This film has been spliced together out of different recordings made during dress rehearsals at Leeds Playhouse in January 2020 so please excuse any slight audio-video sync issues. We hope you enjoy it.”
