The Generation Of Z – Edinburgh (New Zealand Season / Royale Productions)

By | Published on Sunday 10 August 2014

86% of the world’s global population has been infected with The Z syndrome. You are among the last known group of survivors. Everyone is at the mercy of the military now, who are the only ones with training, technology, and weapons. The experience is intense at times, with actors screaming and shoving the audience, attempted zombie attacks and explosive noises (which were much too loud). The experience was disappointing, however, as I was expecting the audience to have more much more of an impact on the outcome. Instead, we were left standing and watching scenes the vast majority of the time, with few adrenaline pumping moments. An ambitious production, with impressive set decoration, that ultimately needs more thrills.

Assembly George Square Theatre, until 25 Aug.
