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 had a camera at production meetings, rehearsals, poster shoots and for the kick off of production too. It’s all resulted in Playing […]

We still haven’t shook off those persistent living dead just yet. As we get the house in order for the new work we’ll be making this year, we have been filling in the archives with last years work. There is a lot of material left over from our Irish stage premiere of Night Of The […]

“And we’re done…” The curtain fell on our production of Night Of The Living Dead after 5 performances this week in the Watergate Theatre.

The Irish stage premiere of Night Of The Living Dead opened up last night to a capacity crowd in The Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny. We have been blown away by the response to last night’s debut performance. For us, it was the culmination of a year of hard work and after an intense rehearsal period it […]

When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth… A ghost estate in southeast Ireland. July. Present day. The dead are walking the earth and attacking the living. What hasn’t already been abandoned is now abandoned entirely. The kitchen of an empty, ransacked house. It is night time. It had spread […]

We’ve arrived in the Watergate Theatre finally. And we are now one day away from opening the Irish stage premiere of Night Of The Living Dead. It’s been a long journey getting here. And now that we’re here, it feels like we could do with another 12 months of pre-production. Rule of thumb with most […]

In two days our zombies will be unleashed upon the Irish theatre going public. But of course, we can’t call them zombies. In fact, in the original Night Of The Living Dead they’re never referred to by the z word at all. And so we’re following suit! They are ghouls, things, creatures… monsters! At one […]
