Dare to become a hero in a Shakespearean world where the dead rise! The Louisiana Tech University Department of Theatre is proud to present Living Dead in Denmark written by Qui Nguyen and directed by Mark D. Guinn. Nguyen also wrote last year’s crowd-favorite, She Kills Monsters, the 90s’ Dungeons & Dragons action-adventure. People loved it so much, they came back to see it again! Nguyen’s legacy of geek-dom will continue with the martial arts spectacular, Living Dead in Denmark, January 30 through February 3 at 7:30 pm and February 4 at 2:00 pm in the Arthur W. Stone Theatre.
Join us on this fast-paced, action-packed adventure where the powers between magical realms and the natural world teeter in the balance. Living Dead in Denmark takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where William Shakespeare’s Lady Macbeth, Juliet, Horatio, and the very angry Ophelia are fighting the Zombie Lord’s hordes of undead, evil witches and fairies. In the midst of this world riddled with death, destruction and deceit, these heroes will do whatever it takes to find their lost loves. The fate of humanity rests in the hands of Shakespeare’s leading ladies as a clash of the undead titans ensues in a sword-slinging zombie feast.
Assistant Director Emilie Belisle, a graduate student in the Department of Theatre, shares her insights on Living Dead in Denmark, as she has worked with Guinn throughout the rehearsal process.
“Short and sweet, Living Dead in Denmark is a love story,” she said. “I believe it shows us that even in a dark and broken world, love conquers all. It’s pretty poignant for a show about zombies, and I really do believe there is something for everyone in this show. Audiences can expect to be ‘wow’ed by the fights, lights and sounds, ‘oooh’ed by the incredible costumes and props, and awed by the characters and the heart of the story. Audiences will leave with the kind of hope that challenges them to believe love actually can change the world.”
