Exeter Fringe Festival
Sat 16 Oct 2021
The story focuses on what brought the zombie disease to Cornwall – it were the pasties, no, that’s Devonian propaganda. It moves on to how the Cornish deal with it, well, they don’t evacuate to Devon that’s for sure. It answers the tough questions like should you murder a zombie eating a cream tea?
Well, only if they go cream first. Then the zombies get rights, they’re not zombies see, just people having a hard time. Come on! I bet the government will only intervene once London is affected, that’d be right.
‘The tongue-in-cheek series of sketches takes a gentle swipe at parish councils, Cornish MPs in the House of Commons, and such local institutions as Trago Mills and the Cornish Times.’
‘A great, little play’
STROUD THEATRE FESTIVAL
12+. It’s about a zombie apocalypse after all. If you raise your children on zombie films this won’t scare them any more than they already are.
Warning: People from Devon, particularly Tavistock, may find some elements offensive to their cultural heritage, for example the show accurately describes the right way to make a cream tea; JAM FIRST.
