Add to CalendarWilliam Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead03/04/2020 07:30 PM03/14/2020 07:30 PMMM/DD/YYYYAmerica/VancouverVIU’s Theatre Department proudly presents its spring production, by John Heimbuch, directed by Leon Potter, and starring VIU students as cast and crew. It’s going to be cold outside this March 4-14, so join us at VIU’s Malaspina Theatre for a hot and hazardous London night, 1599. The curtain has come down after the Lord Chamberlain’s Men’s inaugural performance of Henry V at the Globe Theatre; but instead of enjoying the applause, playwright William Shakespeare has to fend off an embittered actor and avoid a lawyer scheming for fame and fortune. When a costumer is bitten by a plague-ridden madman, and Queen Elizabeth I herself arrives at the theatre seeking shelter from an infectious disease running rampant in the medieval city streets, life in the playhouse takes a turn for the worse. As the deadly affliction spreads through London, the Globe is quarantined and the survivors within must fight for their lives… Will art and science be sacrificed as the relentless horde of shambling zombies overtakes the stage? Not before hearts are broken and desperate rescue missions are plotted in this action-packed mash-up with blood and gore a-plenty. SHOWTIMES: Wed March 4 at 7:30pm - pay what you can preview (no online sales) Thurs March 5 at 7:30pm - Opening Night Fri March 6 at 10am - school show matinee (by reservation only) Fri March 6 at 7:30pm Sat March 7 at 7:30pm Wed March 11 at 10am - school show matinee (by reservation only) Thurs March 12 at 10am - school show matinee (by reservation only) Thurs March 12 at 7:30pm - Costume theme night!
