"The zombies in the play aren't back from the dead. They are people who have lost their identities, so it's like they have lost their brains. The moral of the story is all about being yourself." Rosy Cardis, 11.

SYNOPSIS: It's not easy being young and smart.
Alex is a twelve-year-old with a keen eye and a wit to match. She's been watching everyone at school for the last few days like an eagle... or maybe a hawk, and something's not right. Everyone is acting weird. They're all starting to say the same things, wear the same clothes, do bad dance routines in the corridors for no reason at all and meet up after school to drink decaf-mocha-latte-soy-frappucions. The writing's on the wall. She knows what's happening. They're all turning into zombies.
In fact, it's the Night of the Zombies - that fateful occurrence that happens once every 200 years. Alex and her buddies know what to do, they'll have to fight with all their might the zombies of tonight.
PRODUCTION HISTORY: FIGHT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT THE ZOMBIES OF TONIGHT is currently being presented as a world premiere at the ATYP theatre, Walsh Bay, from the November 9-19.
