Institution Theater presents Risen: Improvised Tales from World War Z
Risen, inspired by the best-selling novel World War Z by Max Brooks, is an improvised performance wherein each week features the zombie apocalypse from a different geological perspective: the South African slums, the Paris underground, the upscale apartments of Manhattan and beyond.
Guest monologists will perform post-apocalyptic stories of survival, decimation or worse. From there the all-star cast of improvisers will flesh out that part of the world before it's too late. Through the panic of the outbreak, to the front lines of the Z War and back again, Risen will give a glimpse into the darkest parts of humanity imaginable.
