Imitating the Dog and Leeds Playhouse Co-production presents
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD – REMIX
Wed 18 – Sat 21 Mar 2020
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, a box of props and a rail of costumes. 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.

★★★★ “Obsessively detailed, carefully playful and impeccably timed… A remarkable experiment and a worthy ode to [George A] Romero’s film… It’s hard to imagine another company doing the same job better.” – The Guardian
“Imitating the Dog’s shot-by-shot recreation is in many ways audacious… A fascinating theatrical experiment.” – The Stage
