Zombies are so hot right now and if you can’t get enough in movies, on television, or in video games, you won’t be disappointed if you’re in the Vancouver area this season.
The Zombie Syndrome: On Death Island
The Zombie Syndrome is an interactive theatre experience on the streets of Vancouver kicks off Tuesday, October 1, 2013 and will run for the entire month, until November 1st. This brand new show, written and directed by award-winning theatre artist Andy Thompson, recruits audience members as Special Agents on an interactive, smartphone-enabled, thrill seeking adventure at a secret location in Vancouver.
The exact starting point of this year’s all new show remains undisclosed until the day before their appointed meeting, when the audience receives a phone call with instructions on where to meet (somewhere in central Vancouver). Once they are assembled at the top-secret rendezvous point with other members from the team of Special Agents (you!), the group is taken on a very public and unique theatre adventure. Attendees are encouraged to wear walking shoes, dress for the weather and be prepared to move. As the stars of the show, the audience travels from site to site, gathers clues from sudden allies, and faces challenges they must overcome in order to proceed to the next scene.
Tickets are on sale now through the online box office.
