At this stage, we’ve near exhausted the archive of material from last years Irish stage premiere of Night Of The Living Dead but there’s one more piece that still hasn’t been exhumed.

We’ve just launched a Fund it campaign for Night Of The Living Dead. Fund it is a fantastic crowd funding website that has been integral to so many great Irish projects getting off the ground in the past 12 months. We always waited until we had a really special show to utilise Fund it and […]
