If you missed out on Flatmates v Zombies in 2013, as we did, don’t miss its remake. Coming to the Tristan Bates Theatre for one night only.
Flatmates v Zombies II
Flatmates V Zombies returns to life, invades Seoul and London!
Flatmates V Zombies premiered in 2013 through a partnership between Goldsmiths, University of London MA Musical Theatre student Hyun Ju Baek and writer Chris Hogg. It made its sold-out debut at the Camden Fringe Festival before transferring to the Tristan Bates Theatre, Covent Garden.
Three years later and with two new characters, the remake – Flatmates V Zombies II – is now in development, with a Korean director, and British lyricists and composers creating a score to die for.
Through two teams working together, but 6,500 miles apart, FVZii’s a real monster mash-up of creative sensibilities. With a less-than-subtle satirical take on current affairs, a poignant message, and loads of blood and guts, it’s now set for production in both languages and in both countries.
The story beings during a disastrous rooftop protest in Seoul before moving to London, where Ji-Eun — the only survivor — comes to start a new life. Everything’s fabulous, until all the native Londoners suddenly turn into walking, flesh-eating, corpses. Only those born abroad are unaffected. For Ji Eun and her European student flatmates this leaves them with a dilemma. Do they try and escape the city they love, or try to save it?
