The Chicago debut of playwright Axel Arth and composer Tyler Welton, THINGS FALL APART: A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE MUSICAL will perform Saturdays at 7:30pm March 2-30, 2013 at the Gorilla Tango Theatre (1919 N.

After spending the first three years of the zombie apocalypse running for his life, Walt has finally had enough. With his best friend Tom, and Tom's fiancé Barbara, he decides that it's time to put his foot down and take back the world from these brain-munching monsters. It starts out great: the first survivor that runs into their fledgling town is the lovely Catherine.

Unfortunately for Walt, the second survivor is her boyfriend, Ben. In addition to feeling a bit too strongly about Catherine for her own good, Ben just can't see eye to eye with Walt and his city. If the world really has ended, why would you possibly want to spend your last few days playing house? As ideals clash, civilizations rise and romances start to bloom. Meanwhile, the threat of zombies ruining it becomes ever more present. Not to mention the threat of it all being brought down from the inside, too.

What follows is answer to many of life's greatest questions: Will the good guy get the girl? Can humanity rebuild after it's been completely destroyed? And, most importantly, who's going to make it out of the zombie apocalypse alive? Come see the answers to these questions (and more!) in this fun parody romp, THINGS FALL APART: A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE MUSICAL.
