New One Act Play: Downton Zombie

Yes, I finally hopped on the Walking Dead bandwagon and created a zombie comedy...

And I am simultaneously poking fun at the popular BBC show, Downton Abbey.

But actually, I was more inspired by the old program Upstairs Downstairs. I found those characters -- especially the butler -- far more fascinating, and decided I wanted to write in the spirit of those comedy-of-manners classics, but twist things up with some gruesome undead characters.

My favorite part about this one-act comedy is that the wealthy characters are so clueless, they don't notice when half their staff has transformed into zombies!

The play is available through Pioneer Drama Service.
