New production goes on stage


Moresby Arts Theatre presents ZOMBIES ATTACK & WHEN THE BUAI FALLS. June 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10. Curtains up 7.30. Matinee Sat 10th, 1pm. All welcome.

Papua New Guinea is about to be ‘invaded’ by ancient Roman soldiers and modern-day zombies. The invasion will see grown men in Roman tunics throwing spears and interacting with the local ladies. Meanwhile, audiences will be getting skills training in killing would-be zombies. The invasion starts on Thursday June 1 at 7.30pm when 1-act plays are performed by Moresby Arts Theatre (MAT). The two plays, ‘Zombie Attack’ and ‘When the Buai Falls’, are short comedies guaranteed to get audiences laughing.

MAT Vice-President Bob Stanley describes the two plays as farces infused with a dash of Monty Python’s odd-ball humour. ‘When the Buai Falls’ is a romantic comedy that is more laughable than loveable. ‘Zombie Attack’ is an absurdist mock seminar on how to prepare for when the Zombie apocalypse occurs – which is of course, very useful information to have. “Both are Pythonesque, satirical and really just plain silly plays performed by a very talented group of MAT actors. You’d have to be stone-cold dead – or undead – to sit through these plays without having a good laugh,” Stanley says.

Tickets are available from MAT, Boroko Food World and Waterfront and online at ‘Ticket Buddy’. Prices for MAT shows are now cheaper, with entry only costing K30 for adults and K10 for children. Show dates are June 1, 2, 3, and June 8, 9, 10 with a matinee on Saturday 10 June 1pm.
