'Night of the Flesh Eaters'
Directed by Alex Tey
Produced by Bessie Tockstein
Sponsored by WAVE Productions
Show Dates May 17-20
Venue Shanley Pavilion


A small group of Northwestern students is forced to hole up in Shanley pavilion to defend themselves against an onslaught of shambling creatures that gorge themselves on human flesh. Tensions build as the group argues over the best way to survive the night. Then a shocking discovery changes everything...

At once a thrilling piece of theatrical horror and a high-stakes philosophical thought experiment, this close-quarters, high octane drama is an entirely original work with characters and dialogue devised by the cast, examining the moral dilemmas surrounding war, the right to life, capital punishment, and more.

Prepare yourself.

They're coming for you.
