A stage production based on George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is to run in a new immersive space in London.
Night of the Living Dead will run in Space 18 later this year. The venue will also be the home for new immersive show Variant 31.
Dates and creative team have yet to be announced.
The production is produced by Red Cabin Theatrical, led by Frazer Brown, whose credits include The Toxic Avenger musical.
He said: “It’s been a life long dream of mine to bring George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead to the stage and I’m excited the stars have aligned for it to happen in 2019, after our initial workshops in 2016. It’s been a long journey from a seed of an idea in 2006 to our development workshops in 2016, Along the way we have had wonderful support from some of the people involved in the original film, I think we’ve created a loving tribute to the zombie film that started it all.”
He added:“Horror theatre is a much-neglected genre in London, I’ve always aimed to rectify that when I can.”
Variant 31 opens in April in Space 18, an as yet secret location in London.
Dates for Night of the Living Dead’s run have not been announced.
