As many of you know, and some of you may not know, Walking Shadow Theatre Company has a show in the MN Fringe Festival this year. Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead, A True and Accurate Account of the 1599 Zombie Plague, opens this Saturday, August 2 at Rarig Theatre.
Normally I would support my friends by purchasing tickets to the show and enjoying it, followed by enthusiastically cajoling everyone I know to go see it themselves. Since I am no longer living in MN and saddened by missing every show this year (Walking Shadow, Upright Egg, Live Action Set, Random Fringe shows featuring people I randomly know), I’ve decided to contribute instead in a more creative capacity.
Following is my contribution to the Minneapolis theatre community and is especially appropriate, I’d like to think, for Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead.
That’s not make-up, people!
