William Shakespeare's Land of the Dead

written by John Heimbuch
directed by Amy Rummenie

August 2 - 10, 2008

The Minnesota Fringe Festival
at the University of Minnesota's
Rarig Thrust Theatre

London 1599. Shakespeare’s Henry V opens the Globe Playhouse, but while the actors strut and fret, an excess of bile plagues the populace. A true and accurate account of the Elizabethan zombie plague!

As flesh transformed Lycaon into raging beast,
these dead now awaken for one final feast.
Their bite brings affliction – wounds that don’t heal –
so sever their necks with thy good English steel.
