Maul of the Dead
Maul of the Dead
"A whirlwind of zombie mayhem." —Kansas City Star

"A likable, lunatic spree through horror clichés, pop-culture gags … it's great fun." —Pitch Weekly
Horror/dark comedy. By Mitch Brian.

Cast: 5m., 4w., 10 to 25 or more zombies. It's 1978 and zombies in polyester walk the earth. A pair of SWAT officers take refuge with a perfume counter girl in a zombie-infested shopping mall. Hiding out in JC Penney's, they're soon joined by a TV weather girl, her traffic reporter beau, and a suburban punk chick who is still in love with the boy from the record store … now a zombie! As ravenous hoards attack the frail security gate separating the living from the walking dead, the survivors make a desperate bid for weapons and supplies, eventually forming a makeshift family amidst the consumer trappings of the 1970s. But paradise is short-lived as betrayal, false identities and infection from a zombie bite threaten the belief that "there's got to be a morning after." Danger lurks behind every mannequin in a play that blends horror, satire and melodrama with punk rock and disco music into "a whirlwind of zombie mayhem." (Kansas City Star) Area staging. Approximate running time: 1 hour.
