Anton Chekhov's Cherry Orchard of the Living Dead

Table 8 Productions and Off Strip Productions present Anton Chekhov's 'Cherry Orchard of the Living Dead'

Written and directed by Troy Heard (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, The Chalk Boy), " Cherry Orchard of the Living Dead is a madcap mashup of the late 19th Century Russian playwright's works with a healthy dose of George A. Romero-style Zombie-Fu!

The peripatetic actress Madame Ranevskaya has returned to her ancestral manor following yet another whirlwind farewell tour - complete with extended stop in Tijuana - only to find things turned upside down. Instead of marrying off her nubile daughter Masha to the local scholar, she’s boarding up windows and grabbing pistols to ward off the coming onslaught of resurrected serfs. Questions arise: What are Gregorovitch Samsonovsky’s true intentions? Will Anfisa finally make a warm cup of tea? And what is that smell emanating from the barn? Only Pepito the Chihuahua knows for sure.
