Photos and feedback from “A Zombie Christmas”

The cast from all the readings.

The cast from all the readings.

My Christmas one-act A ZOMBIE CHRISTMAS had a mid-summer staged reading in June 2016 at Princeton Theatre in Princeton, Illinois as part of a short play festival.

The festival coordinator sent me these photos and feedback:

Zombie Christmas was an audience favorite! Your sense of humor is deadly (if I may), and people were laughing out loud at all the right spots. I’m sorry you couldn’t be there—I’d have loved to meet you!—but we all thank you for sharing your play with us. It was a big contributor to the success of the festival.

I should have mentioned, too, that during the talkback people were enthusiastic. It was a mixed-generation crowd, and they definitely appreciated the conflict, from their own perspectives.
