The Visceral Company presents the West Coast premiere of the play by Scotrt T. Barsotti. When a violent uprising of the undead forces two couples into hiding, infected spouses take a turn for the worse. Gary and Karen have tethered their stricken halves, Molly and Joe, for the safety of all; but as they fall deeper into sickness, the question of whether or not any part of their former selves remains becomes harder and harder to answer as they become more and more dangerous. As Gary and Karen come face to face with the true meaning of commitment, they must ask of each other: when does love die?
THE REVENANTS got some good reviews back east, with the Chicago Reader calling it “uncanny and emotionally powerful,” and the Pittsburgh City Paper opining that the play was “compelling and intriguing.” Best notice, however, came from Jon Kitley at Kitley’s Krypt: “A zombie play with brains.”
