Dead Wood

It’s sort of a given that if there’s a play called The Pornozombies, our twisted friends at Nearly Naked Theatre will get around to mounting it eventually. Refreshingly, Matt Casarino’s script is about pretty much what the title indicates: reanimated corpses who are extra-horny and wind up in sexay videos, presented Reefer Madness-style with a stiff, moralizing narrator. Evil (we’re guessing) scientist Dr. Hadfield probably hopes to save a lot of money on actors, who insist on things like getting paid. But when these stars take their lunch break, are any of us safe? Will Detective Karla Lumpkins learn the truth in time? Where is that bow-chicka music coming from?
