Shaun Of The Dead Live - Zombie of the Week

Posted by The Daily Zombies Friday, January 2, 2015

Brace yourself for our first Zombie of the Week for 2015: A live-stage production of Edgar Wright's all-time zombie comedy classic, Shaun of the Dead. 

Shaun of the Dead, the seminal 2004 British zombie comedy that quite frankly conjured this very sub-genre of a sub-genre of horror that we have grown to love and loath by now: Zombie Comedy. Yes, indeed, survival horror is now a comedy, and we have auteur film-maker Edgar Wright to thank for that. 

Testament to how influential the film has been, we have never run short of cinematic homages (Juan of the Dead, for example) and here we are with an upcoming live production stage show running across UK. Promising a bloody good time, Shaun of the Dead Live is created by Almost Legal Productions and comes with the blessing of none other than Shaun of the Dead himself, Simon Pegg. 

Here's the promo trailer of the show. 

And here 's the poster for the show.

And here's the official synopsis of the live stage production.

Life is going nowhere for Shaun. He spends his life in his local pub, with his best mate Ed, has issues with his Mum and step-dad and things aren’t running too smoothly with his girlfriend Liz. When Liz dumps him, Shaun finally decides to get his life in order. He must win back her heart, repair his relationship with his mum and face up to his responsibilities. Unfortunately, there is a slight problem with the world being taken over by Zombies. For the newly inspired Shaun, this is just another obstacle. In the face of a full scale ZOMBIE EPIDEMIC, armed with a cricket bat and his best mate with a spade, Shaun & Ed go to rescue Liz, her friends, mum and grudgingly his step-dad, and take them to the safest most secure place he knows.

Belief from Simon Pegg and Working Title together with Universal Pictures is about to put Almost Legal Productions on the map. They cut their teeth with several of the most difficult to stage productions. This has enabled ALP to work extensively on adapting one of the most all out zombie UK comedy favourites to stage. With audience participation, goody bags with all the kit required to take part, songs and dances, ALP are set to bring you life after death!

Making its premiere back in October (in line with most of the other undead stuff), Shaun of the Dead Live is currently touring in the UK. Head over to the Almost Legal Productions page to know more on the ticketing details.
