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.
The performance schedule is Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. Tickets are $28 with group, senior and student discounts available. Thursday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. is an industry performance where available tickets are $10 for people presenting resumes or headshots. Tickets may be ordered online at strawdog.org
