Genre: Comedy, Festival
Created and Performed by Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher, Directed by Mark Gindick


In this fringe festival favorite, the mustachioed Professor Penelope Vindlevoss discovers Edward the Zombie on her recent anthropological expedition, and takes it upon herself to domesticate him. What is Edward’s final lesson? To put on a circus, of course! Physical comedy and undead logic collide in this quirky fable about how to be truly human...

“Edward the Zombie is a brilliant and comical creation.  The Professor’s mustache is almost a character by itself …”
Washington City Paper

“With all the charm of a flea circus, The Vindlevoss Family Circus Spectacular! creates big smiles and laughs that will leave you itching for more!”

About the Company: Animal Engine

 Animal Engine Theatre Company is a performance ensemble devoted to creating original devised theatre.

Since 2010 we have created 2 works: The Vindlevoss Family Circus Spectacular! (a 2 person zombie circus fable) andIt’s a 10 Minute Life (a 5 person breakneck version of “It’s a Wonderful Life”).  We have performed on the Off-Off Broadway stages of New York City (Dixon Place, tinyDANGEROUSfun, The Brick Theater, The Downtown Clown Revue), and at the Fringe Festivals of greater America (Cincy Fringe, Capital Fringe).

Our work is offbeat, committed to the relationship between the performer and the audience, and regularly tiptoes the line between silliness and tragedy.

Animal Engine is led by artistic directors Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher, and makes its home in New York City.
