Photo Flash: First Look at Kendra Thulin, Leah Karpel and More in Strawdog's NEIGHBORHOOD 3: REQUISITION OF DOOM
Parents have been noticing their children have become addicted to the latest video game, Neighborhood 3. The game is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) where the goal is to kill zombies and escape a setting that looks like their own neighborhood. But as the line blurs between virtual and reality, both parents and players realize that fear has a life of its own. Four actors play a variety of characters on a faceless suburban street in a nameless town in this gripping, yet comic, horror story. Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom, the recipient of the 2009 Primus Citations from the American Theatre Critics Association, may be inappropriate for children. It contains violence, language, adult situations ... and zombies.
