The zombies are back looking for brains on the streets of Vancouver as The Virtual Stage presents The Zombie Syndrome: On Death Island, the much-anticipated follow-up to their site-specific show last year.
The Zombie Syndrome: On Death Island recruits audience members as special agents to take part in an interactive, smartphone-enabled, thrill seeking adventure through the streets of Vancouver.
The exact starting point of the show remains a secret until the day before the audience’s appointed meeting, when they will receive a phone call with instructions on where to meet. Once they are assembled at the top-secret rendezvous point, the group is taken on a very public and unique theatre adventure. The highly interactive theatrical scavenger-hunt features technical elements requiring each audience group to use their smartphones to navigate through the show and find clues leading to the secret hiding place of Sgt. Sullivan.
Culture Vulture David C. Jones talks with The Zombie Syndrome: On Death Island writer and director Andy Thompson about the production which runs through November 3, 2013. Tickets and more information is available online at http://www.thevirtualstage.org.
