Mr. Flubbers' Undead Legions
Written & Performed by Zorn Rose
Agnes & Agnes - Vancouver, BC
V.3 - Pantages Studio 
When zombies are alone, they're not nearly as vicious as their reputation would have you believe. It's only when there are humans around that the hunger starts to come over them.
Finn and Alice are a couple of newly deceased trying to avoid detection by locking themselves in a small apartment and cutting off all contact with the outside world. Their only living companion is their fish, Mr. Flubbers.
Although the premise is comedic, Mr. Flubbers' Undead Legions also addresses the darker sides of isolation and guilt.

Mr. Flubbers’ Undead Legions

Agnes & Agnes—Pantages Studio

I love the premise of this and I expected lots of comedic zombies jokes. I’m a little disappointed that this isn’t nearly as comical as suggested but I am pleasantly affirmed that this show is every bit as entertaining as I hoped.

The conflict between the main characters never gets fully resolved but conflict between the zombies and humankind receives lots of exploration. Overtures of macro-morality gets some work, as well as concepts of who knows best for whom.

This show promises 75 minutes but actual run time ends at 50. I wish they would have wrote in the extra 25 minutes as the plot has lots of issues left to address. I would have liked to see some development after Finn’s sole, physical link to life severs. Does he fall to Alice’s desire to “live” among the living? Does he fall to the ideals of a zombie apocalypse? Where do they go from here? We never get the chance to find out.

 

There’s lost potential here but what they serve up is good for the brain.

As you leave the theatre, they offer a package which is the prelude to the show. You can get the package by donation and I highly recommend that you pick it up. They did a very good job putting the prelude together and it’s well worth your read.
