The Show

>> It is 2015. London has fallen. The deadly Z virus is transforming the global population into a rabid horde of the infected. With societal structure collapsing, humanity is faced with a desperate battle for survival.

>> The Generation of Z: Apocalypse is the immersive live experience that puts you squarely into the dark heart of a zombie massacre.

>> With chaos unfolding around you, prepare to be thrust into your very own action movie, where your choices directly influence the show’s narrative and outcome. Forget sitting down; this is multimedia storytelling on steroids, with no fourth wall and no interval. Every choice is life or death and survival is in your hands.

WARNING: This is a promenade performance containing moments of extreme shock and tension, realistic depictions of gore and violence, and loud noises. Not suitable for those under 16 years old.
