Pear Theatre Presents GEEKS VS. ZOMBIES
by BWW News Desk - Oct 26, 2016

In a radical departure from the standard Christmas fare, Pear Theatre presents "GEEKS VS. ZOMBIES," a gory fun-fest by the creator of "SUPER VILLAIN!!", another Holiday season antidote that was a hit at the Pear two years ago. "GEEKS VS. ZOMBIES" is the story of four friends who survive the zombie apocalypse due to their video game skills and encyclopedic knowledge of zombie movies. While the play contains philosophical arguments about free will and destiny, and metaphorical comparisons to the state of the world, audiences will no doubt enjoy the action scenes, raunchy humor, and plenty of guts and brains. "GEEKS VS. ZOMBIES," co-directed by James Kopp and John Morrison, previews on December 1. Press and Opening Night is Friday, December 2, followed by a champagne gala. The show runs Thursdays through Sundays, through December 18. All performances are held at thePear Theatre, 1110 La Avenida St., Mountain View. All tickets for this show are $20; to purchase tickets the public may visit www.thepear.org or call (650) 254-1148. (more...)
