When the dead walk … you run!
Living Dead In Denmark is an action-adventure-horror sequel to William Shakespeare’s Hamlet
Set five years after the events of the original, the undead have risen to power and are trying to take over the world, led by the zombie lord and true king of Denmark
Assembling a formidable opposition, Fortinbras has resurrected the corpses of some of the greatest women that Shakespeare had to offer - Lady Macbeth, Juliet, and the very angry Ophelia
A clash of the undead titans ensues!
"Living Dead in Denmark is a hilarious and witty play by Qui Nguyen. Using Hamlet as a jumping-off point, Nguyen throws in martial arts, horror movies, pop songs, puppetry, and comic books. Eat your heart out, Ed Wood … A Backstage Critic’s Pick!" ~ Victor Gluck, Backstage
“Qui Nguyen’s comic book fantasia on Bardic themes takes characters from the main tragedies and throws them into an us-versus-zombies apocalyptic scenario, with enough rock-accompanied stage combat to keep an Elizabethan groundling satisfied. This gamely trashy treat is a perfect storm of theater - and horror-geek obsessions.” ~ David Cote, Time Out New York
