Genre: Drama

What happens when outwardly “normal” people snap? Joyce Carol Oates’ ZOMBIE sheds insight into this question by taking you inside the mind of a sexual psychopath. In ZOMBIE, a Jeffrey Dahmer-esque serial killer by the name of “Quentin P__” describes the murder, torture and rape of his young male victims. A sexual psychopath, he aspires to create zombie slaves to meet his every need. ZOMBIE received the Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel and was awarded the Lilla Risk Rand fiction prize by the Boston Book Review. Warning: ZOMBIE is not appropriate for those under the age of 17 due to adult situations.

Subsequent to its run at The 2008 NY International Fringe Festival, ZOMBIE received the FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Solo Show, Talkin’ Broadway granted Connington the Outstanding Actor (Male) Award, and OffOffOff.com honored the play as a Fringe Festival Favorite in the categories of Best Overall Show, Best Lead Actor, Best Direction and Best Design. Samuel French Publishers will be releasing Connington’s adaptation in February 2009 to coincide with the play’s opening.
