Title: Snow White Zombie: Apocalypse
Member: Brenton Lengel
Description: Snow White awakens to Prince Charming’s Kiss…28 days after the zombie outbreak. Snow White Zombie: Apocalypse continues the story of Snow White Zombie, the hit one-act which began in the 2010 Estrogenius Festival at Manhattan Theatre Source, and went on to receive the audience choice award and an extended run in Estro Encores.
Now Snow White, Rapunzel, and Prince Charming must escape a horde of undead fairytale characters to confront the enigmatic Black Fairy – All the while locked in a vicious love-triangle, and hunted by the re-animated corpse of the Big Bad Wolf.

Blood, sex, kung-Fu, and gender politics…fairytales as usual.

Snow White Zombie: Apocalypse’s world premier was produced by State of Play Theatre, as part of the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival, and published in "Best of the Fringe 2012" by IndieTheatreNow.

Praise for Snow White Zombie: Apocalypse

“Snow White Zombie: Apocalypse is as good as its name. It is a wonderful, clever, action-packed play with a heck of a lot of heart and chock full of a dizzying amount of talent. Brenton Lengel [is] a formidable writer we should keep an eye on…I would have stayed in that theater to enjoy the playful innovations of Lengel’s mind as long as he cared to keep us there.” -Naomi McDougall Jones, Nytheatre.com

“The show is funny and thoughtful, dark without being gloomy…[it] easily could be considered among the hierarchical progeny of such sweeping cultural masterpieces as Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, and such modern-day cult classics as the Simon Pegg-fronted rom-com-zom Shaun of the Dead.” -Marti Sichel, Woman Around Town

“If you haven’t seen it, go, and hurry as if the end is truly coming. Every moment of Brenton Lengel’s play proves worth it.” -Linnea Covington, The Happiest Medium

“The script by Brenton Lengel displays a deep understanding of both the fairy tale and horror worlds…this is edge-of-your-seat theatre.” -Hy Bender, hyreviews.com 

“Ambitious, satirical, creative and risky, [Snow White Zombie: Apocalypse] is far more than a cartoon or horror spoof.” -Rob Lester, NiteLifeExchange.com
