Theatre503 and Ameena Hamid Productions present
Sophie and Jamie have just been cancelled, a misplaced selfie has gone viral, and the pair have been accused of mocking a dead child. But their troubles are only just beginning as the real and digital world collide their lives and friendship are ripped apart by algorithms, online mobs and an obsessive troll called Mr Punch.
Zombiegate is a witty & empathetic debut play which attempts to get behind the headlines and hashtags of internet trolls, scrutinising mob mentality, myths around cancel culture and asks us to empathise with people we find it hard to agree with. Zombiegate was a winner of Theatre Royal Haymarket’s Masterclass Pitch Your Play 2018.
A Theatre503 and Ameena Hamid Productions co-production Zombiegate is directed by Julian Bruton, produced by Ameena Hamid, with set and costume design by Delyth Evans.
Age guidance: 14+
