The Generation of Z: Apocalypse in East London April 2015

The Generation of ZPerformances from 4th April and booking until 5th July 2015
ON SALE FROM FRIDAY 20TH FEBRUARY 2015

After critically acclaimed runs in New Zealand and at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Generation of Z: Apocalypse is a high-velocity theatre experience being brought to a purpose-built venue in East London from 4th April.

Described as “an adrenaline-churning assault of a show” by The Scotsman, this is immersive theatre unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Audiences are hurled into the maelstrom of a zombie apocalypse, where the unique story unfolds around them in real time. Through the electrifying 75 minute show the fate of our audience lies in their hands, where every choice they make can mean life or death for themselves… and for the rest of mankind.

The world of The Generation of Z: Apocalypse unfolds within a purpose-built, labyrinthian venue in Dept W on Mile End Road in Whitechapel. The former Wickhams department store is an iconic building in the heart of East London, with its basement spanning over 25,000 square feet. It is here that audiences must attempt to navigate their way through our apocalyptic wasteland.

Not for the faint hearted, The Generation of Z: Apocalypse throws you into your very own action movie, where there is no fourth wall and no interval.

Show Producers Beth Allen and Charlie McDermott say, “We can’t wait to unleash The Generation of Z: Apocalypse onto London audiences. We are creating theatre for a new generation, giving our audiences an experience and not just a performance. With film-quality production design, a heart-stopping narrative and opportunities for audiences to affect the story’s outcome, this show will be like nothing anyone has experienced before.”

With Executive Producer William Burdett-Coutts commenting, “This production started in New Zealand, came to Edinburgh where it was one of the fastest sellouts ever and we are delighted to be bringing it to London. This does something special in terms of appealing to both a traditional and non-traditional theatre audience and in terms of generating interest in live work is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen.”
