by Qui Nguyen

“Remember the excitement of each new production from the Ridiculous Theatrical Company? The company would offer a riff on a classic, shot through with enough satire to stand on its own. Vampire Cowboys Theater Company is channeling that energy in LIVING DEAD IN DENMARK, the hilarious and witty new play by Qui Nguyen. Nguyen, like Charles Ludlam before him, knows his Shakespeare. Using HAMLET as a jumping-off point, Nguyen throws in martial arts, horror movies, pop songs, puppetry, and comic books. Eat your heart out, Ed Wood…. A Backstage Critic’s Pick! -Victor Gluck, Backstage
“Qui Nguyen’s comic book fantasia on Bardic themes takes characters from the main tragedies and throws them into an us-versus-zombies apocalyptic scenario, with enough rock-accompanied stage combat to keep an Elizabethan groundling satisfied. This gamely trashy treat is a perfect storm of theater―and horror―geek obsessions.” -David Cote, Time Out New York
Living Dead in Demark was originally produced by Vampire Cowboys Theater Company in New York City.
